Connects Slack and IRC channels by sending messages back and forth. Read more here.
Installation and usage
Either by installing through npm:
$ npm install -g slack-irc$ slack-irc --config /path/to/config.json
or by cloning the repository:
In the repository folder:$ npm install$ node index.js --config /path/to/config.json
It can also be used as a node module:
var slackIRC = ;var config = ;;
slack-irc uses Slack's bot users.
This means you'll have to set up a bot user as a Slack integration, and invite it
to the Slack channels you want it to listen in on. This can be done using Slack's
command. This has to be done manually as there's no way to do it through the Slack bot user API at
slack-irc requires a JSON-configuration file, whose path can be given either through
--config or the environment variable
CONFIG_FILE. The configuration
file needs to be an object or an array, depending on the number of IRC bots you want to run.
This allows you to use one instance of slack-irc for multiple Slack teams if wanted, even if the IRC channels are on different networks.
To set the log level to debug, export the environment variable
slack-irc also supports invite-only IRC channels, and will join any channels it's invited to as long as they're present in the channel mapping.

ircOptions is passed directly to node-irc (available options).
Run the tests with:
$ npm test
slack-irc uses a slightly modified version of the Airbnb Style Guide. ESLint is used to make sure this is followed correctly, which can be run with:
$ npm run lint
The deviations from the Airbnb Style Guide can be seen in the .eslintrc file.
