Parrot is an extensible cross-platform instant messaging architecture (currently for OS X only, due to limitations of Swift). It currently features a reverse-engineered API for Google Hangouts, done by Tom Dryer, with scaffolding around it for multifaceted use. In the future, Facebook Messenger, custom Jabber, WhatsApp, and more protocols may be supported, depending on API availability (or reverse engineering).
- Tom Dryer, for reverse-engineering the Hangouts protocol in
- Peter Sobot, for the initial translation and development of
Hangover, a Swift port of
hangups, which was used as the initial code base for Parrot's Hangouts component.
