Thelounge (a fork of shoutIRC) is a web IRC client that you host on your own server.

Supported Architectures

Our images support multiple architectures such as x86-64, arm64 and armhf. We utilise the docker manifest for multi-platform awareness. More information is available from docker here and our announcement here.

Simply pulling linuxserver/thelounge should retrieve the correct image for your arch, but you can also pull specific arch images via tags.

The architectures supported by this image are:

Architecture

Tag

x86-64

amd64-latest

arm64

arm64v8-latest

armhf

arm32v7-latest

Usage

Here are some example snippets to help you get started creating a container from this image.

docker

docker create \
--name=thelounge \
-e PUID=1000 \
-e PGID=1000 \
-e TZ=Europe/London \
-p 9000:9000 \
-v </path/to/appdata/config>:/config \
--restart unless-stopped \
linuxserver/thelounge

docker-compose

Compatible with docker-compose v2 schemas.

---
version: "2.1"
services:
thelounge:
image: linuxserver/thelounge
container_name: thelounge
environment:
- PUID=1000
- PGID=1000
- TZ=Europe/London
volumes:
- </path/to/appdata/config>:/config
ports:
- 9000:9000
restart: unless-stopped

Parameters

Docker images are configured using parameters passed at runtime (such as those above). These parameters are separated by a colon and indicate <external>:<internal> respectively. For example, -p 8080:80 would expose port 80 from inside the container to be accessible from the host's IP on port 8080 outside the container.

Ports (-p)

Parameter

Function

9000

Environment Variables (-e)

Env

Function

PUID=1000

for UserID - see below for explanation

PGID=1000

for GroupID - see below for explanation

TZ=Europe/London

Specify a timezone to use EG Europe/London.

Volume Mappings (-v)

Volume

Function

/config

Configuration files.

Environment variables from files (Docker secrets)

You can set any environment variable from a file by using a special prepend FILE__.

As an example:

-e FILE__PASSWORD=/run/secrets/mysecretpassword

Will set the environment variable PASSWORD based on the contents of the /run/secrets/mysecretpassword file.

Umask for running applications

For all of our images we provide the ability to override the default umask settings for services started within the containers using the optional -e UMASK=022 setting. Keep in mind umask is not chmod it subtracts from permissions based on it's value it does not add. Please read up here before asking for support.

User / Group Identifiers

When using volumes (-v flags), permissions issues can arise between the host OS and the container, we avoid this issue by allowing you to specify the user PUID and group PGID.

Ensure any volume directories on the host are owned by the same user you specify and any permissions issues will vanish like magic.

In this instance PUID=1000 and PGID=1000, to find yours use id user as below:

$ id username
uid=1000(dockeruser) gid=1000(dockergroup) groups=1000(dockergroup)

Application Setup

  • When the application first runs, it will populate its /config

    • Stop the container

    • Now from the host, edit /config/config.js, wherever you've mapped it

    • In most cases you want the value public: false to allow named users only

    • Setting the two prefetch values to true improves usability, but uses more storage

    • Once you have the configuration you want, save it and start the container again

    • For each user, run the command

    • docker exec -it thelounge s6-setuidgid abc thelounge add <user>

    • You will be prompted to enter a password that will not be echoed.

    • Saving logs to disk is the default, this consumes more space but allows scrollback.

    • To log in to the application, browse to http://<hostip>:9000

    • You should now be prompted for a username and password on the webinterface.

    • Once logged in, you can add an IRC network. Some defaults are preset for Freenode.
