This is a container based IRC client setup.
What we are currently using:
- tmux for terminal multiplexing
- irssi as client
We use docker to make the setup simpler, so you will not have to install all the dependencies manually.
All you have to do is:
- Install docker
- Add your local user to docker group:
sudo usermod -aG docker <your_user>
- Pull image (from Hub):
docker pull mribeiro/irc
or build locally using this repo (which is way much cooler):
You can use the simple run.sh script that we have provided:
./run.sh <nick> <server> # To connect as mmr into irc.freenode.net ./run.sh mmr irc.freenode.net
Or you can run the container by hand, just like you would run the irssi command.
# Show irssi help docker run -i --rm mribeiro/irc --help # Connect to freenode as mmr docker run -i --rm mribeiro/irc -n mmr -c irc.freenode.net
