I love IRC and this is the best macOS client for it.

I created my own theme for it that I love.

I am using Geeza Pro Regular 18pt font.

I love its awesome channel search feature & use it a lot.

Install theme

To install the theme, download the Monokai Night folder attached from here.

Then go to Textual app. Go to preferences and in Styles click on Browse Styles here:

Put the downloaded folder inside the folder. You can read this for more information.


  • I can inspect HTML of the window by going to HELP -> Advanced -> Enter Developer Mode and then right clicking on what I want to inspect.

  • Right click on chat background and Force Reload Style will reapply the styles you made in the active theme (as well as the JS code).

  • CMD + enter when typing will render text as /me command. OPT + CMD will allow to write multi line text.

  • Can jump instantly to a channel using url scheme. With Developer Mode enabled, right click on channel and Copy Unique Identifier. Then open URL (in KM) like textual://goto/2F49204B-971F-4016-920B-CC15A308581C where the thing after goto/ is the id.

  • ⌥⌘U = hide right sidebar.
