You can do lots of really cool things with aliases! I just use them for insert text though!!

/alias add [alias] /input insert [text] will setup an alias that will be insert into text input box when typing /[alias]

/alias add shrug /input insert ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

There was actually a built-in way to connect to Slack via IRC, but there's also a Python plug-in which is more full-featured called wee-slack. And since Slack's IRC bridge has now been closed this is one of the few ways to use Slack in another client.

TBH I stopped using it though. Get's annoying 'cause people use Slack differently that a purely text-based chat, and I only use it for one little group.


Might be better-off using Bitlbee?

Hven't had any luck getting sleduc/weechat-xmpp to work. There's a newer fork—Psycojoker/weechat-xmpp— but that changes don't seem significant.

Doesn't seem to be maintained. No PRs accepted, no issues getting attention.

Suspicion is that I need to update it from Python 2 to 3.

Additionally I had to also install xmpppy, but still no luck. At time of installation the AUR package was marked as 'unmaintained'.

Use a terminal emulator that lets you select text in columns, so you can easily copy stuff without grabbing all the |s and bits of the 'user' and 'buffer' lists! In Urxvt you can do this by holding Alt and Shift.
