JsChat

http://jschat.org/
JsChat is a chat system. It has an easy to learn JSON protocol, an ncurses client, a web app, and a server. You can try it right now on jschat.org. JsChat is similar to IRC, but it’s a fundamentally simpler system. The web app has lots of interesting features:

  • IRC-like commands: /names, /name new_name (/nick works too), /clear, /lastlog
  • It’s pretty tiny; it’s built with Sinatra and Prototype
  • Auto-linking: pasting an image displays it inline, youtube and vimeo videos will appear as well
  • Last messages are displayed on join: the last 100 messages are displayed, so you don’t feel lost when you join a room
  • Tab completion!
