irssi – crapbuster (cleaning up the irc window)

Tired of seeing join/part/quits messages in your IRC window, and want a quick way to selectively get rid of it – then look no further –

mkdir -p ~/.irssi/scripts
cd ~/.irssi/scripts
wget http://scripts.irssi.org/scripts/crapbuster.pl

Then within IRSSI –

/load crapbuster.pl
/set crapbuster_levels JOINS PARTS QUITS NICKS CLIENTCRAP CRAP MODE TOPICS KICKS

And then :

/crapbuster

Will remove all of the above stuff from your current IRC window.

 

If you put the crapbuster.pl script within ~/.irssi/scripts/autorun then it’ll load up by magic (saving you from doing the one line); after running the /set command, do a ‘/save’ and your irssi config will be updated – so in the future you’ll just need to type in ‘/crapbuster’
