Tutorial 5.5: Setting up an account on Shout

Some people prefer not to connect to IRC via the command line, those people use either Shout or IRCCloud. IRCCloud is a paid service so here I will be walking you through signing up to Shout.

First off head over to Shout-register to make an account.

Next enter all of your details, choose the channels you wish to connect to, and click register.

Now we can actually connect, so now go to Shout, enter your details and click "Sign in"

Once you connect you should automatically join any channels you previously chose. If, however, you did not choose any channels, you will be greeted with a page asking for details of a network and channels. Here you can add any channels you wish.

Now that everything is set up, you can change any settings you would like by clicking on the gear icon at the bottom left of the page.

From this page you can change the theme (neuron is a personal favourite), add custom css, change your password, and more.

Next: Nano as a text editor
