irc chat

envs.net does not have its own irc server but we are a member of the tildeverse - irc group. our channel is #envs on tilde.chat irc. > channel list and server stats
the tilde.chat irc network is available at irc.tilde.chat:6697 (with ssl)
as a round robin of available nodes.

tilde.chat is meant to be a space for all tilde members to hang out, share, teach, and learn.
Hang out in #meta the tilde general channel. =)

# here are some options to connect

  • weechat (when logged in with ssh)
  • irssi (needs to configure)
  • znc (log in with your mail password and configure as needed)
  • run webirc to register your thelounge account for our webchat
    note that thelounge does not authenticate with your shell/mail password
  • any other client that you like: connect to our node at irc.tilde.chat:6697 with ssl

# znc (bouncer)

the system znc authenticates using your email credantials (user@envs.net | your email pw). the znc interface is available at znc.envs.net. client connections are on port 6667 and 6697 (both with ssl). you can add network connections (up to 10) via webadmin or via a direct client connection. see the znc wiki for more information.

# weechat relays

weechat introduced unix socket relays in version 2.5 which is a much easier way to offer per-user relay access. username.envs.net/weechat is configured to proxy to the default unix relay socket location (~/.weechat/relay_socket). to get started using it, follow these steps:
  1. in weechat:
    • /relay add unix.weechat %h/relay_socket
    • /set relay.network.password mysupersecretpassword
  2. at your shell:
    • chmod o+rw ~/.weechat/relay_socket - this allows nginx to connect to your socket on your behalf
  3. in your relay client:
    • weechat-android:
      • connection type: websocket (ssl)
      • websocket path: weechat
      • relay host: username.envs.net
      • relay port: 443
      • your relay supersecretpassword
