the extensions in included in default zsh distribution since 2002-03-07 (should be version 4.0.1)
hide aliases

sometimes i found it quite useful to have a much more quiet irssi :)

"/alias hideadd eval set activity_hide_targets $activity_hide_targets $-"
"/alias hideclear set -c activity_hide_targets"
"/alias hidelevels.clear set -c activity_hide_level"
"/alias hidelevels.set set activity_hide_level parts joins quits nicks modes"
"/alias hidelist set activity_hide_targets"
"/alias hideset set activity_hide_targets $-"

i have replaced the aliases with a simple script. see hide.pl (source)

mIRC-like flashing with putty
to get notified off activities, while im working, i use the following setup:

"/set beep_when_window_active ON"
"/set beep_when_away ON"
"/set bell_beeps ON"

Audible bell (switch Ctrl+a Ctrl+g)
- no bell and steady on bell
right aligned nicks

"/format own_msg {ownmsgnick $2 {ownnick $[-9]0}}$1"
"/format own_msg_channel {ownmsgnick $3 {ownnick $[-9]0}{msgchannel $1}}$2"
"/format pubmsg_me {pubmsgmenick $2 {menick $[-9]0}}$1"
"/format pubmsg_me_channel {pubmsgmenick $3 {menick $[-9]0}{msgchannel $1}}$2"
"/format pubmsg_hilight {pubmsghinick $0 $3 $[-9]1}$2"
"/format pubmsg_hilight_channel {pubmsghinick $0 $4 $[-9]1{msgchannel $2}}$3"
"/format pubmsg {pubmsgnick $2 {pubnick $[-9]0}}$1"
"/format pubmsg_channel {pubmsgnick $3 {pubnick $[-9]0}{msgchannel $1}}$2"


uptime alias
put it in your .irssi/config in the alias section as one line:
"UPTIME = "eval exec - expr `date +%s` - \\$F | awk '{print \"Irssi uptime: \"int(\\\\\\$1/3600/24)\"d \"int(\\\\\\$1/3600%24)\"h \"int(\\\\\\$1/60%60)\"m \"int(\\\\\\$1%60)\"s\" }'";"
ssh/telnet alias
"/alias TELNET window new hidden;window name telnet;exec -name telnet -nosh -interactive -window telnet $-"
"/alias SSH window new hidden;window name ssh;exec -name ssh -nosh -interactive -window ssh $-"
happy mudding, telnetting :)
icq client in irssi?:)
"/alias MICQ window new hidden;window name micq;exec -name micq -nosh -interactive -window micq $-"
but you could also try the icq module for irssi
news reader in irssi?:)
no problem:
"/alias NNTP window new hide;window name news;exec printf 'article <$0>\\nquit\\n'|nc news.helsinki.fi nntp|tr -d '\\r'"
hmm now there is a script for this purpose too. checkout news.pl (source)
autocorrect feature in irssi?

"/completion -auto .) :)"
"/completion -auto anywya anyway"
"/completion ios http://irssi.org/scripts/"

Write "ios" press "tab key" and it will be replaced with "http://irssi.org/scripts/".

Where are my completions/replaces gone?

With latest irssi cvs the format changed a bit. cras merged replaces and completions

completions = {
  wid = { value = ""; };
  sid = { value = "http://scripts.irssi.de/"; };
  ios = { value = "http://irssi.org/scripts/"; };
  ":9" = { value = ":)"; auto = "yes"; };

And there is now a command to maintain the completions:

"/completion [-auto] <key> <value>"
"/completion -delete <key>"

To get the replaces like behavior add the completion with "-auto" to the commandline.

/ame & /asay

"/alias AME foreach channel /me $-; foreach query /me $T $-"
"/alias ASAY foreach channel /eval msg $$C $$-; foreach query /eval msg $$T $$-"

for latest CVS you could use (cvs from 2002-10-14.18:24 or later)

"/alias AME foreach channel ${k}me $-; foreach query ${k}me $-"
"/alias ASAY foreach channel ${k}msg * $-; foreach query ${k}msg * $-"

the alias is command char independed now.

Automatically updating the changed date in vim.
<Geert> For editing Irssi scripts with vim auto-change timestamp on closing
<Geert> autocmd BufWrite *.pl %s/changed     => '.*/\="changed     => '" . strftime("%c") . "',"/e
<Geert> on the .vimrc
How to dump irssi perl variables for debugging?
"/alias dump script exec use Data::Dumper\; print Data::Dumper->new([\\$0-])->Dump"
how to send messages without showing up in scrollback/log?
i use "/alias QMSG quote privmsg $0 :$1-" for this purpose. it has the advantage over "/^msg" that it works with command char "^".
if you want to auth against some service like Q/Chanserv you now can use:
"/ircnet add -autosendcmd "qmsg Q@CServe.quakenet.org AUTH nick pass" Quakenet"
How to protect irssi from being closed accidently?
"/alias quit echo dont do this at home"
if you like to close irssi for some reason use "//quit".
my anti annoyance filters ;)
"/ignore -channels #chan1,#chan2,#chan3 * JOINS PARTS QUITS NICKS"
"/ignore -channels #chan1,#chan2,#chan3 -regexp -pattern (away|gone|back|playin|weg|wech|returned) * ACTIONS"

Disclaimer: of course you will miss some stuff with this ignores. but for me it makes it more readable.

Another way to get rid of some message levels is crapbuster.pl

How to update all irssi scripts at once?

i use: "alias uis='rsync -avz main.irssi.org::irssiweb/scripts/scripts/\*.pl ~/.irssi/scripts/official'"
(note: this is a shell alias! not an irssi alias. to use it from irssi use:
"/alias uis exec - rsync -avz main.irssi.org::irssiweb/scripts/scripts/\*.pl ~/.irssi/scripts/official")
To update only the scripts you already have, use the --existing switch in rsync: "rsync -avz --existing main.irssi.org::irssiweb/scripts/scripts/ ~/.irssi/scripts/".

for autorun just link the scripts from "~/.irssi/scripts/official" to "~/.irssi/scripts/autorun/"
How to use different formats for the statusbar clock and the timestamp in scrollback?
to set the scrollback format use:
"/format timestamp {timestamp %%H:%%M:%%S }"
(default: "/format timestamp {timestamp $Z}")
to set the statusbar clock format use:
"/set timestamp_format %H:%M:00"
How to toggle between 2 windows?
"/bind meta-x command window last" now pressing meta/alt+x toggles between 2 windows.
The fastest way to close a query is...?
just type "/q" (without any parameters) in the query window.
How to show the prompt in the active split window?
first make it only visible in the active window with
"/statusbar prompt visible active"

Then make it a window-statusbar
"/statusbar prompt type window"
How can i change the timezone of the clock in irssi?
"/script exec $ENV{'TZ'}='<nameofyourtimezone>';"
e.g. "/script exec $ENV{'TZ'}='UTC';" to run the clock in irssi on UTC while your system is maybe using CET.
How can i add all my open channels to the irssi channel list?
"/alias ADDALLCHANNELS script exec foreach my \$channel (Irssi::channels()) { Irssi::command("channel add -auto \$channel->{name} \$channel->{server}->{tag} \$channel->{key}")\;}"
this adds all your channels with auto join enabled. if you just wanna add them remove the "-auto".
thanks to Valentin Batz (senneth) for the alias.
how can i disable snotes in the statuswindow again?
"/window level ALL -snotes"
"/window new hidden"
"/window level +snotes"
How can i force irssi to redraw the whole screen?
you can use "/redraw". on most terminals pressing "ctrl+l" (in screen "ctrl+a l") should do the same.
of course you can bind it in irssi aswell: "/bind ^L redraw".
