#chat.sr.ht quick-start for experienced IRC users

The webchat is available at chat.sr.ht and requires no configuration to use. It will automatically connect you to your bouncer account. You can also connect directly to the bouncer using your own IRC client.

To connect with a third-party IRC client, you will need to generate an OAuth 2.0 personal access token to use as your server password. Visit the personal access token issuance page and set the grant string to "meta.sr.ht/PROFILE:RO", adding an optional comment, and leaving the other fields unchanged.

Hostname

Username

Password
your personal access token

If you intend to use multiple clients, it is recommended that you append "@clientname" to your username, using an arbitrary unique string to identify each client. If your IRC client does not support soju's "soju.im/bouncer-networks" extension (check if a plugin is available), you may want to configure separate connections for each network by using the username format username/network-name@client-name.

See client-specific configuration for recommended configuration steps specific to your preferred IRC client.
