This image uses the ubuntu:vivid image which provides the latest znc, and therefore, all the updated libraries to work with building modules correctly.

Some info's:

  • I used ubuntu:vivid to make life easier. This image contains everything you need to not only run znc, but build your extra modules within it as well.

  • Additionally, I install libotr5 to provide support for the plugin, which I personally use, and I hope you do too!

  • We run the init script, /znc-run, as root. That subsequently runs znc as a user znc. So be mindful not to --privilege this container! Also, this means you don't have to worry about the permissions of your znc_config since the znc-run script will chown everything for the znc user:)


  1. Build a crane/fig etc.. service file which does similar to the following:

     docker run -d -p 8443:8443 -v ~/.znc:/znc_config --name znc inanimate/znc
  2. ????

  3. Profit.

  4. Want to build a module? Just use nsenter (docker-enter) and do eit!! Be mindful if your module relies on external libraries and whatnot. A good example of this is the otr plugin I talk about above, which won't even work with znc-buildmod; I had to build it right out of its git repo.

If you do not already have a config directory (if you've been using znc, its /home/username/.znc), take a look at /znc-run as it provides a basic config by providing some parameters.

Example crane config:

        image: inanimate/znc
            restart: always
            publish: [""]
            volume: ["./znc_config:/znc_config"]
            hostname: znc
            detach: true
