Installs Subrosa, the clojure IRCd

see for more info.


java and clojure, of course. runit is used for service management.


Just a handful of attributes, should be pretty clear how to use them.

  • node['subrosa']['tarball'] - where to save the downloaded tarball
  • node['subrosa']['path'] - path where Subrosa will be on the system
  • node['subrosa']['user'] - user to run as, default: nobody
  • node['subrosa']['group'] - group to run as, default: nogroup
  • node['subrosa']['port'] - port to listen on, default: 6667
  • node['subrosa']['host'] - hostname to listent on, default: localhost
  • node['subrosa']['network'] - network name, default: Subrosa
  • node['subrosa']['ssl'] - ssl enabled?
  • node['subrosa']['password'] - password protected?
  • node['subrosa']['fs-logging']['directory'] - where to keep logs


Using this is as simple as adding recipe[subrosa] to a node or role.


  • SSL setup is not currently done
