Gitter IRC Bridge

Join the chat at https://gitter.im/gitterHQ/irc-bridge

Connect to Gitter using the IRC protocol.

Configuring your client

You can connect to the official Gitter IRC bridge at:

  • host: irc.gitter.im
  • port: 6667 (or 6697)

SSL is mandatory

You'll need to provide a valid token to authenticate yourself. You can send your token to the server using the /PASS command. If you use a GUI client, this is the Server Password; your client will send it automatically on connection.

You can obtain your token from https://irc.gitter.im

You can also find instructions on how to configure specific clients in the Wiki

Running the bridge locally

You'll need a working Node.js environment.

  • Install the dependencies with: npm install
  • Start the server with: DEBUG=irc* npm start
