I am the creator of the Gentoo Linux operating system, an experienced architect of large-scale technology efforts, a strong Open Source project leader, a skilled software developer, and an accomplished technical writer.
+
=== Description ===
 +
irssi is a small command line IRC client based on ncurses. It's a great thing to use when you SSH into a server, or just simply for your main IRC client.  
  
I have made significant contributions at a number of organizations, including E*TRADE Financial and Microsoft Corporation. I have written many popular articles for IBM developerWorks and Intel Developer Services, and my writing has also appeared in C/C++ Users Journal.
+
=== Installation ===
 +
The install of irssi is pretty straight forward. There are not many USE flags, but one that is worth looking at is the {{c|SSL}} flag. This enables you to use SSL when connecting to servers.
 +
{{console|body=
 +
###i## echo "net-irc/irssi ssl" >> /etc/portage/package.use
 +
###i## emerge irssi
 +
}}
 +
=== Using irssi ===
 +
Using irssi initially can be a little intimidating if you're not used to command line programs. To first start irssi, you just simply run:
 +
{{console|body=
 +
$ ##i##irssi
 +
}}
 +
There are flags you can pass to the command line while starting irssi, such as:
 +
{{console|body=
 +
$ ##i##irssi -n mynick -c irc.freenode.org
 +
}}
 +
This would connect you to Freenode with the nick 'mynick'. Or alternatively you can just run the {{c|irssi}} command and connect via SSL if you need to:
 +
{{file|body=
 +
/connect -ssl irc.freenode.org
 +
}}
 +
This will automatically connect you over port 6697.  
  
== Experience ==
+
When you have connected to the server of your choice, you can join a channel simply by:
 +
{{file|body=
 +
/j #funtoo
 +
}}
 +
If you want to leave any channel you've entered you can use the {{c|part}} command:
 +
{{file|body=
 +
/part #funtoo reasons...
 +
}}
 +
There are a few ways of navigating through your channels, you can use {{c|alt+<nowiki>{1-9}{q-p}</nowiki>}}, or alternatively you can use the {{c|window}} command that is in irssi:
 +
{{file|body=
 +
/window 1
 +
/window 2
 +
/window 3
 +
}}
 +
For as many channels you are apart of.
  
=== MediaWiki Consultant, WikiWorks; Jan 2014 - Present ===
+
When you're ready to leave, you can simply type in:
 +
{{file|body=
 +
/exit
 +
}}
 +
Which will close out connections to the IRC networks you've joined, and take you back to your console window.
 +
=== Themes and scripts ===
 +
==== Scripts ====
 +
There are a few things you can do to make irssi look a little bit better and add some cool features. There are a few plugins that are pretty useful, such as {{c|fnotify.pl}} which is a script that utilizes {{f|libnotify}} to send you popup notifications for when your nick is pinged or you are sent a private message.

Description

irssi is a small command line IRC client based on ncurses. It's a great thing to use when you SSH into a server, or just simply for your main IRC client.

Installation

The install of irssi is pretty straight forward. There are not many USE flags, but one that is worth looking at is the SSL flag. This enables you to use SSL when connecting to servers.

# echo "net-irc/irssi ssl" >> /etc/portage/package.use
# emerge irssi

Using irssi

Using irssi initially can be a little intimidating if you're not used to command line programs. To first start irssi, you just simply run:

$ irssi

There are flags you can pass to the command line while starting irssi, such as:

$ irssi -n mynick -c irc.freenode.org

This would connect you to Freenode with the nick 'mynick'. Or alternatively you can just run the irssi command and connect via SSL if you need to:

/connect -ssl irc.freenode.org

This will automatically connect you over port 6697.

When you have connected to the server of your choice, you can join a channel simply by:

/j #funtoo

If you want to leave any channel you've entered you can use the part command:

/part #funtoo reasons...

There are a few ways of navigating through your channels, you can use alt+{1-9}{q-p}, or alternatively you can use the window command that is in irssi:

/window 1
/window 2
/window 3

For as many channels you are apart of.

When you're ready to leave, you can simply type in:

/exit

Which will close out connections to the IRC networks you've joined, and take you back to your console window.

Themes and scripts

Scripts

There are a few things you can do to make irssi look a little bit better and add some cool features. There are a few plugins that are pretty useful, such as fnotify.pl which is a script that utilizes libnotify to send you popup notifications for when your nick is pinged or you are sent a private message.

fnotify.pl (perl source code) - fnotify.pl

        close (FILE);
}
 
Irssi::signal_add_last("message private", "priv_msg");
Irssi::signal_add_last("print text", "hilight");
 
#- end

Another very useful script is for colored nicks, to better tell people apart. Which can be found at irssi scripts called nickcolor.pl.

When you have the scripts you would like you would put them into ~/.irssi/scripts and set a link to ~/.irssi/scripts/autorun.

$ wget -O ~/.irssi/scripts/nickcolor.pl http://scripts.irssi.org/scripts/nickcolor.pl
$ cd ~/.irssi/scripts/autorun
$ ln -s ~/.irssi/scripts/nickcolor.pl .
$ ln -s ~/.irssi/scripts/fnotify.pl .

You can do this for as many scripts as you've chosen to use. They will automatically load when you start irssi. You can also manually load scripts:

/load ~/.irssi/scripts/fnotify.pl
Irssi: Loaded script fnotify

Whichever works best for you is what you should do.

Themes

You can choose from many themes on the irssi themes page if you don't like the default look of it. Once you've chosen the them you like, you can simply put it in your ~/.irssi/ directory and when you run just run:

/set theme mycooltheme

And there you have it, the theme you have chosen is now there.

Conclusion

irssi is a great IRC client, and really helpful if you spend a lot of time in a terminal emulator or on a server.
