I think setting up something like this would be a great idea. Like mojca, irc is no use to me for a number of reasons. I need to be able to be offline for periods, and switch between multiple different devices without missing messages, and with irc this is tough.. We use a self hosted mattermost service at work, which is basically just like slack... Its macOS and iOS clients are pretty good.
