Plugin plugin

The plugin plugin let you inspect loaded plugins.


The plugin plugin is distributed with irccd. To enable it add the following to your plugins section:

plugin = ""


The plugin plugin only reacts to the special command. It understands info and list sub commands.

  • The sub command info shows information about a plugin,
  • The sub command list shows loaded plugins (see configuration for limits).

Both commands work in a channel or as private message with irccd.


The following options are available under the [plugin.plugin] section:

  • max-list-lines: (int) max number of lines allowed for the list sub command (Optional, default: 3),
  • max-list-columns: (int) max number of columns allowed per lines (Optional, default: 80).

Deprecated in irccd 2.1.0:

  • format-usage: Use [format.plugin] usage instead,
  • format-info: Use [format.plugin] info instead,
  • format-not-found: Use [format.plugin] not-found instead,
  • format-too-long: Use [format.plugin] too-long instead,


The plugin plugin supports the following formats in [format.plugin] section:

  • usage: (string) message to show on invalid usage,
  • info: (string) plugin information message to show,
  • not-found: (string) message to show if a plugin does not exist,
  • too-long: (string) message to show if the list of plugin is too long.
