Hiding specific nicklists in WeeChat with

Wednesday, August 15, 2018

I use Mastodon via WeeChat and Bitlbee, this means that I also get a nicklist with a lot of users from Mastodon, which is not useful and it only takes up a lot of valuable screen space.

Thankfully it’s easy to disable the nicklist for specific buffers via the script


Installing a script is easy in WeeChat:

/script install


You use the plugin with the command /toggle_nicklist <option>. The options you have available is show, hide, toggle, add and remove.

And to hide a nicklist for a certain buffer you just jump to the buffer and then run the command /toggle_nicklist add. And don’t forget to save any changes with /save when you’re done.
