The Lounge App


The Lounge is a self-hosted web IRC client.

User management

When installed with Cloudron SSO enabled, add and remove users in the Cloudron admin page.

When installed without Cloudron SSO enabled, new users must be added using the Lounge CLI tools.

Default admin user

With SSO disabled, the Cloudron app creates a default user named 'admin' for convenience. Be sure to change the password in the Lounge setting's page. If you do not intend to use this user, you can delete this user.


Lounge supports various customizations. You can edit /app/data/config.js using the File manager to add customizations.

Be sure to restart the app after making any changes.
