# weechat relays

weechat introduced unix socket relays in version 2.5 which is a much easier way to
offer per-user relay access.
zeus.darkshell.eu/weechat is configured to proxy to the default unix relay
socket location (~/.weechat/relay_socket). to get started using it, follow these steps:

  1. in weechat:
    • /relay add unix.weechat %h/relay_socket
    • /set relay.network.password mysupersecretpassword
  2. at your shell:
    • chmod o+rw ~/.weechat/relay_socket - this allows nginx to connect to your socket on your behalf
  3. in your relay client:
    • weechat-android:
      • connection type: websocket (ssl)
      • websocket path: weechat
      • relay host: zeus.darkshell.eu
      • relay port: 443
      • your relay supersecretpassword
