Installation and usage

The Lounge requires Node.js v6 or more recent. Yarn package manager is also recommended.
If you want to install with npm, --unsafe-perm is required for a correct install.

Running stable releases using Yarn (recommended)

Run this in a terminal to install (or upgrade) the latest stable release from npm registry:

[sudo] yarn global add thelounge

If you already have The Lounge installed globally, use the following command to update it:

[sudo] yarn global upgrade thelounge

When installation is complete, run:

thelounge start

For more information, read the documentation, wiki, or run:

thelounge --help

Running from source

The following commands install and run the development version of The Lounge:

git clone
cd thelounge
yarn install
NODE_ENV=production yarn build
yarn start

When installed like this, thelounge executable is not created. Use node index <command> to run commands.

⚠️ While it is the most recent codebase, this is not production-ready! Run at your own risk. It is also not recommended to run this as root.

Development setup

Simply follow the instructions to run The Lounge from source above, on your own fork.

Before submitting any change, make sure to:
