jeekl/weechat — version 0.1.2 Jan 12th 2014



Simple module that can install weechat, the IRC client.


Simply include the weechat class.

include weechat

Set $install_upstream_packages = true to install unsigned packages built by the weechat developers (or community). Warning This will enable your system to install packages from unsigned sources.

Set $install_devel_packages = true to install the development packages built by the upstream developers. This requires that you've set $install_upstream_packages to true before.


Example of how to do this in your site.pp:

node just.let.me.chat.already.com' {
  class {'weechat':
    install_upstream_packages => true,
    install_devel_packages    => true,
  include weechat
