What is irssi?
Irssi is a terminal based IRC client for UNIX systems. It also supports SILC and ICB protocols via plugins. Some people refer to it as 'the client of the future'.
How to use this image
Because it is unlikely any two irssi users have the same configuration preferences, this image does not include an irssi configuration. To configure irssi to your liking, please refer to upstream's excellent (and comprehensive) +documentation.
Be sure to also checkout the awesome scripts you can download to customize your irssi configuration.
Directly via bind mount
On a Linux system, build and launch a container named
my-running-irssi like this:
$ docker run -it --name my-running-irssi -e TERM -u $(id -u):$(id -g) \ --log-driver=none \ -v $HOME/.irssi:/home/user/.irssi:ro \ -v /etc/localtime:/etc/localtime:ro \ irssi
--log-driver=none to avoid storing useless interactive terminal data.
On a Mac OS X system, run the same image using:
$ docker run -it --name my-running-irssi -e TERM -u $(id -u):$(id -g) \ --log-driver=none \ -v $HOME/.irssi:/home/user/.irssi:ro \ irssi
/etc/localtime on Mac OS X because
boot2docker doesn't use this file.
