Slack IRC Plugin

Bidirectional IRC integration with slack, with simple functionality like avoiding higlighting yourself on IRC, etc.

The token for the Docker container is specified at runtime, using docker -e SLACKTOKEN=YOURTOKENHERE


git clone
cd slack-irc-plugin
npm install

Write your own configuration file (config-example.js) is a good starting point for building your own.

var config = {
    // required
    server: '',
    nick: 'slackbot',
    password: '(optional)',
    username: 'slackbot-username',
    channels: {
        '#irc-channel password(optional)': '#slack-channel'
    users: {
        '~irclogin': 'slackuser'
    floodProtection: true

Save this to a file in the root of the project then run your bot with:

node your-config

This will launch the bot in your terminal based on provided configuration.


  • server: IRC server
  • nick: IRC bot's nickname
  • username: IRC bot's IRC login (no tilde ~)
  • token: Your Slack API token, get your token at
  • channels: Map of IRC channel to Slack channel names, with optional password
  • users: Map of IRC nick to Slack username
  • highlight: Set to true to turn off unicode zero-width character insertion in nicks for IRC
  • slackmark: Any text value will be appended to usernames from IRC when sent to slack
