This post will describe how to setup and use IRC client on Atomic host. This will be applicable for any Cloud host also.

Irssi is a terminal based IRC client for Unix/Linux systems. And the best part is we will not need to setup things manually because we have containers.

Make Sure you have Docker installed.

Copy the Dockerfile from here:

Now run docker build -t username/irssi . This will build image.

There after you just need to run the container docker run -it username/irssi .

Later on sometime you will be able to do the whole set up only docker run -it fedora/irssi once Fedora adds Irssi to its Docker hub :).

After you start the container you will see something like this:

Let’s join a channel

You will find the Irssi Commands here: Irssi Commands .
