WeeChat is a console IRC client, which is designed to be light and fast. It's extensible through scripts and plugins.

WeeChat uses a bit more memory than for example irssi, but this should normally not be a problem. Tips for reducing memory usage:

  • Do not load some plugins if you don’t use them, for example: aspell, fifo, logger, perl, python, ruby, lua, tcl, xfer (used for DCC)
  • Load only scripts that you really need
  • Reduce value of option weechat.history.max_lines (number of lines saved in memory for each buffer)
  • Reduce value of option weechat.history.max_commands (number of user commands saved in memory)
