API | URI Parameters | Auto Connect


You can control the look/behavior of mibbit by calling it with various parameters in the uri (like .../?param1=value1&param2=value2&..., see examples):

Widget

don't use "&" instead of "&". It is not valid for uri parameters and might stop working in the future.


examples (just right-click and open in a new window for testing):

http://widget.mibbit.com/?promptPass=true&settings=ccfb0b22251ba27444e43fa1b9997c6f
http://widget.mibbit.com/?channel=%23test&noServerTab=0&nick=MibWid%3F%3F%3F
http://widget.mibbit.com/?server=irc.rizon.net&channel=%23test
https://widget.mibbit.com/?channel=%23yourCh&autoConnect=true
http://miburl.com/wGcgqD (new css parameter example for the start screens)

You can use the Widget-manager to create/preview a skin and the URI creator to create an iframe code snippet.

other valid entries:

  • 0 / 1 are also allowed for false / true

Main Client

these will only result in a pre-filled connect form:

  • nick (if empty a random nick like "mib_3Zh5F4" will be presented)
  • channel (you even can submit a comma separated channel list like %23chat,%23test)
  • server (both server and channel must be provided!)

alternatively you can use:

  • mibbit.com/chat/#channel (defaults to: @irc.mibbit.net)
  • mibbit.com/#channel@your.server.blah
  • mibbit.com/#channel@Network (as saved in our database)

Note: this doesn't work on some pages like twitter.com

Examples:

http://mibbit.com/?server=irc.blah.net&channel=%23theChannel&nick=yourNickHere
https://www.mibbit.com/?server=irc.mibbit.net&channel=%23mibbit,%23chat
http://www.mibbit.com/chat/#help
http://mibbit.com/#javascript@irc.ircstorm.net
http://mibbit.com/#coolChannel@IRCStorm

or (used for the Firefox IRC handler):

  • url=<urlencoded irc://server/#channel>

example:

https://www.mibbit.com/?url=irc%3A%2F%2Firc.ircstorm.net%2f%23lobby

Note: this will not work if networks allow mibbit only on certain servers/ports, e.g., EFnet: irc.umich.edu

other valid parameters:

  • debug=(default: false); true opens a Log-tab (/debug as command works as well)
