published 09/08-20 by brinktjofzki

ircshell is used for IRC idling and typical usage is as follows. Note that there are multiple alternatives for tmux and weechat, such as screen and irssi.

Setup

Start by logging in to ircshell with your user like on any other server (see SSH)

When ircshell has been restarted you must restart the IRC connection.

user@ircshell:~$ tmux
user@ircshell:~$ weechat-curses irc.libera.chat
/join #ludd
/save

Recover

To recover the session simply run the following command.

user@ircshell:~$ tmux a

Issues

Error: unable to create/append to log file (weechat.log)
If another WeeChat process is using this file, try to run WeeChat
with another home using "--dir" command line option.

This error occurs if you are already running a weechat session.
