I use Mastodon via WeeChat and Bitlbee, this means that I also get a nicklist with a lot of users from Mastodon, which is not very useful and it only takes up a lot of valuable screen space.
Thankfully it’s very easy to disable the nicklist for specific buffers via the script toggle_nicklist.py.
Installing a script is very easy in WeeChat:
/script install toggle_nicklist.py
You use the plugin with the command
/toggle_nicklist <option>. The options you have available is
And to hide a nicklist for a certain buffer you just jump to the buffer and then run the command
/toggle_nicklist add. And don’t forget to save any changes with
/save when you’re done.
