Notes for OS X

  1. Make Option (⌥) key action like Meta, or some default key binding in weechat will not work properly.
  • Terminal

"Preferences (⌘,)" -> "Settings" -> "Use option as meta key"

  • iTerm2

"Preferences (⌘,)" -> "Profiles" -> Select the profile you are using (such as "Default) -> Keys -> on "Left option (⌥) key acts as:" or "Right option (⌥) key acts as:" select "Meta" or "+Esc"

  1. Weechat offically suggest install it using Homebrew.
