irssi logging:

#Create directory for logs  
#Large storage drive == /storage/  
sudo ln -s /storage/irssi /var/log/  
#You'll probably want to own these files or atleast rw access.  
chown -R $owner:$group /storage/irrsi  
:::bash  
#in irssi run:  
/SET autolog ON  
/SET autolog_path /var/log/irssi/$tag/$0.log  
/save

irssi-libnotify-git from Arch User Repository (AUR):

#For xfce4  
sudo pacman -S xfce4-notifyd  
#Get package from AUR  
wget
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/ir/irssi-libnotify-git/irssi-libnotify-git.tar.gz  
Extract && cd  
tar -xvf irssi-libnotify-git.tar.gz  
cd irssi-libnotify-git  
#create package - Install missing deps  
makepkg || {  
#missing deps  
sudo pacman -S python2-gobject perl-html-parser  
}  
makepkg  
#install final package  
sudo pacman -U irssi-libnotify-git*.pkg.tar.xz  
#create directories if missing && symlink installed script for irssi
to use.  
mkdir -p ~/.irssi/scripts/autorun && ln -s
/usr/share/irssi/scripts/notify.pl ~/.irssi/scripts/autorun/  
#dep for notify-listener.py  
sudo pacman -S python2-dbus  
#start listener -- I do this when launching irc. You could start it
with systemd/init too.  
nohup notify-listener.py &

Simple script to grab current or start a new irssi:

#!/bin/bash

screenN="irssi"  
notify=\`which notify-listener.py\`  
irc=\`which irssi\`

ps aux | grep "$notify" | grep -v grep &>/dev/null || {  
nohup $notify &  
}  
ps aux | grep -i "$irc" | grep -v grep &>/dev/null || {  
screen -S $screenN $irc  
} && {  
screen -list | grep "$screenN" | wc -l | grep "\^1$" &>/dev/null &&
{  
screen -D $screenN  
screen -R $screenN  
} || {  
echo "You has too many/few irssis, check screen"  
}  
}

Enjoy
