WeeChat (Wee Enhanced Environment for Chat) is a free chat client, fast and light, designed for many operating systems. It is highly customizable and extensible with scripts. The command weechat-headless runs WeeChat in a headless mode (no interface). It can be used for tests or to daemonize WeeChat with the option "--daemon".


-a, --no-connect Disable auto-connect to servers when WeeChat is starting. -c, --colors Display default colors in terminal. --daemon Run WeeChat in background, as a daemon (works only with the command weechat-headless). --stdout Display log messages on standard output instead of writing them in log file (works only with the command weechat-headless, not compatible with option "--daemon"). -d, --dir <path> Force a single directory for all WeeChat files (directory is created if not found). Four directories can be given, separated by colons (in this order: config, data, cache, runtime). If this option is not given, the environment variable WEECHAT_HOME is used (if not empty). -t, --temp-dir Create a temporary WeeChat home directory and delete it on exit (incompatible with option "-d"). The name of the directory is automatically built by WeeChat, with this template: "weechat_temp_XXXXXX" (where "XXXXXX" is random). It it created in the first available directory in this list: environment variable "TMPDIR", "/tmp" (may be different according to the operating system), environment variable "HOME", current directory. The temporary home directory has permissions 0700 (only owner can read, write and execute). -h, --help Display help. -l, --license Display WeeChat license. -p, --no-plugin Disable plugins auto-load. -P, --plugins <plugins> Load only these plugins at startup (see /help weechat.plugin.autoload). If this option is given, the option weechat.plugin.autoload is not used. -r, --run-command <command> Run command(s) after startup; many commands can be separated by semicolons, this option can be given multiple times. -s, --no-script Disable scripts auto-load. --upgrade Upgrade WeeChat using session files generated with command /upgrade -quit. -v, --version Display WeeChat version. plugin:option Option for a plugin.


WARNING: these options are for debug purposes only, DO NOT USE IN PRODUCTION! --no-dlclose Do not call the function dlclose after plugins are unloaded. This is useful with tools like Valgrind to display stack for unloaded plugins. --no-gnutls Do not call the init and deinit functions of GnuTLS library. This is useful with tools like Valgrind and electric-fence, to prevent GnuTLS memory errors. --no-gcrypt Do not call the init and deinit functions of Gcrypt library. This is useful with tools like Valgrind, to prevent Gcrypt memory errors.


For complete doc on plugin options, please look at plugins documentation in WeeChat user's guide <https://weechat.org/doc/>.
