How to use this image

Because it is unlikely any two irssi users have the same configuration preferences, this image does not include an irssi configuration. To configure irssi to your liking, please refer to upstream's excellent (and comprehensive) +documentation.

Be sure to also checkout the awesome scripts you can download to customize your irssi configuration.

Directly via bind mount

On a Linux system, build and launch a container named my-running-irssi like this:

docker run -it --name my-running-irssi -e TERM -u $(id -u):$(id -g) \
    -v $HOME/.irssi:/home/user/.irssi:ro \
    -v /etc/localtime:/etc/localtime:ro \
    irssi

On a Mac OS X system, run the same image using:

docker run -it --name my-running-irssi -e TERM -u $(id -u):$(id -g) \
    -v $HOME/.irssi:/home/user/.irssi:ro \
    irssi

You omit /etc/localtime on Mac OS X because boot2docker doesn't use this file.

Of course, you can name your image anything you like. In Docker 1.5 you can also use the --read-only mount flag. For example, on Linux:

docker run -it --name my-running-irssi -e TERM -u $(id -u):$(id -g) \
    --read-only -v $HOME/.irssi:/home/user/.irssi \
    -v /etc/localtime:/etc/localtime \
    irssi
