JSON-based chat that has web and console clients, and a server.
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 itÃ¢â¬â¢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
- ItÃ¢â¬â¢s pretty tiny; itÃ¢â¬â¢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 donÃ¢â¬â¢t feel lost when you join a room
- Tab completion!
