Weechat keyboard shortcuts

I’ve switched from using irssi to Weechat since I rejoined the ranks as a Racker.

Here is my current weechat.conf file

Some of the ones I use often:

  • ctrl+h - window left
  • ctrl+j - window down
  • ctrl+k - window up
  • ctrl+l - window right
  • ctrl+z - window zoom (make current small window full screen)
  • ctrl+n - next buffer
  • ctrl+p - previous buffer
  • ctrl+y - clipboard paste
  • ctrl+r - search
  • ctrl+j - stop search

normal commands not included with my weechat.conf that I use:

  • /window resize - resizes window to that percentage
  • /buffer clear - clears the buffer, i use this often with the highlight monitor plugin
  • /buffer merge - merges two buffers into one (use ctrl+x to switch between them)
  • /buffer unmerge - unmerge the buffer you’re currently on out to its own
