ERC is an Internet Relay Chat (IRC) client built into Emacs.

Basic setup

Start ERC using M-x erc or M-x erc-tls if you want to connect over SSL.

Helpful keybindings

Common customization

(eval-after-load "erc"
  '(progn
 
     ;; Set personal information
     (setq erc-nick "defaultnick")
     (setq erc-user-full-name "My Full Name")
 
     ;; Set autojoin channels
     (setq erc-autojoin-channels-alist
           '("freenode.net" "#emacs" "#foo" "#bar"))))
 
;; Set autoconnect networks
(defun my-erc ()
  "Connect to my default ERC servers."
 
  (interactive)
  (erc-tls :server "irc.freenode.net" :port 7000))

Using the above configuration calling M-x my-erc will start ERC and connect to Freenode using SSL, then join the three channels listed above.
