litterboxIRC logger

litterbox(1) is a TLS-only IRC logger. It logs events from IRC in a SQLite database, indexing messages for full-text search. It is intended for use with the IRC bouncer pounce, but can also be used independently as a logging bot.

litterbox provides the scoop(1) command-line query utility. A web interface for litterbox is provided by scooper. Some formats of plain text logs can be imported into the litterbox database with unscoop(1).

litterbox requires SQLite3 and libtls, provided by either LibreTLS (for OpenSSL) or by LibreSSL. It targets FreeBSD, OpenBSD and Linux.

make all
sudo make install

If installing libtls manually to /usr/local, for example, make sure /usr/local/lib appears in /etc/ld.so.conf or /etc/ld.so.conf.d/* and be sure to run ldconfig(8) once the library is installed. Set PKG_CONFIG_PATH for ./configure to find it.

PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig ./configure

On OpenBSD the recommended way to run litterbox is with the process supervisor kitd.
