chat.sr.ht provides real-time chat services to sourcehut users based on the Internet Relay Chat (IRC) protocol. In technical terms, chat.sr.ht essentially provides a hosted IRC bouncer for paid users, and a web gateway for non-paying or anonymous users.

NOTICE: chat.sr.ht is currently in a closed beta. Reach out to emersion on libera.chat for details.

SourceHut does not operate an IRC network. We recommend Libera Chat, an independently operated, third-party network, which chat.sr.ht is configured to use by default. Please review the Libera Chat Network policies for details on appropriate network usage.
