Learning in motion

IRC and Slack

without comments

I use to use IRC many moons ago… back when dialup was a thing. WHA?! Anywhosal I’ve only recently within the last year started using slack and left IRC behind several years ago because everyone was leaving it as well. Dalnet and Efnet according to are still the most popular of the servers although I don’t know anyone on them. Then its Freenode which I am currently always on now using weechat. Freenode apparently is very popular now. It’s like…who?

I wanted to connect slack and IRC as someone this weekend stated it could be done. Ofcourse it can! But how? Well pretty dang easily apparently — with the right permissions granted by the team owner. I’m working on confirming permissions! Once I do I’m going to give it a whirl.

I‘ll use these directions on connecting to slack with weechat.

That’s my mission, well one of many this week. I’ll document and report back once complete.


EDIT: As it turns out one of the teams I’m a part of has this feature enabled already. I’ll give it a whirl this evening and report back!
