This is an irssi plugin which allows you to connect to a RobustIRC network without using a bridge.

The plugin is very new, hence there will likely be bugs. Please report them so that we get a chance to fix them.


On Debian testing, use:

sudo apt-get install irssi-plugin-robustirc

Building from source

To build:

git clone
mkdir irssi-robustirc/build
cd irssi-robustirc/build
cmake .. && make
sudo make install

If you need to specify a custom path to the irssi sources, specify IRSSI_PATH:

cmake -DIRSSI_PATH:PATH=$HOME/irssi ..

To build with enabled:

cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE:String="asan" ..

to use asan, run irssi 2>/tmp/asan.log. When memory errors are found, irssi will terminate and you can examine /tmp/asan.log


If you just want to load the module and connect as quickly as possible, here is how you do it:

/load robustirc
/connect -robustirc

Persistent setup

To load the RobustIRC plugin automatically when starting irssi, use:

echo 'LOAD robustirc' >> ~/.irssi/startup

Converting an existing network

In case you were previously connecting to, or to a bridge, open up ~/.irssi/config in an editor, find the corresponding network entry in the chatnets section and add:

type = "robustirc";

Then, find the corresponding server entry in the servers section and replace the address line with the address of the RobustIRC network, e.g.:

address = "";

Configuring a new network

Edit ~/.irssi/config and add a new network to the chatnets section:

<network> = { type = "robustirc"; };

Then, add a server to the servers section:

    address = "";
    chatnet = "<network>";
    autoconnect = "yes";

Here’s a full example:

chatnets = {
  robustirc = { type = "robustirc"; };

servers = (
    address = "";
    chatnet = "robustirc";
    autoconnect = "yes";
