chatter | A cross-server chat application, powered by NodeJS and love.


This is a quick little project I've put together, and I'm planning to put a lot of effort towards PMs, having some sort of account managing system
and some kind of markup for colors. So far it just works, though. Keep an eye out for anyone with an [*] tag, it's me.



Q: WTF is chatter?

A: chatter is a cross-server chat application, where you can join a server and chat with friends.

Q: How do I get it?

A: You need gitget to install it, for now:
pastebin get w5zkvysi gitget
gitget nothjarnan chatter-cc

Q: How do I join a server?

A: It will default to the main server, which conveniently is chat.nothy.se:1337.
There will be more servers in the future.


Q: Do the servers store data?

A: It stores the following:
  • Chat logs
  • Usernames
Q: Do you have any plans for sending PMs?

A: Yes, it will likely happen at a later time.

Q: Is it pretty?

A:
Spoiler
Chat server rules

Q: Can I host my own server?

Got any wicked cool ideas or any bugs that popped up? Go here: https://github.com/n...nan/chatter-cc/

What's coming in the next update?
  • Scrollable chats
  • The ability to change your nickname without restarting the application
  • Client ID! So the server can now identify you and properly interact with you
And if I have the energy, I might make a web interface as well.

I'm posting this from my phone as the network the server is running on is currently down. I'm investigating the issue further.

Scheduled downtime at 2018/06/21 12:00 UTC+1 for moving the server to a different machine.

Everything should be back to normal in an hour or so.

Servers are back up and running, and the port for the default server has been changed.

OP has been updated to reflect this. Enjoy!

The server is currently down due to a thunderstorm. Should be back up in an hour or so, as it appears to have calmed down.

Server appears to be down. Additionally, it appears to be trying to access port 6789, rather than 1337 as noted in the OP

Noted. That may be why it appears to be down. Now - It was actually down a minute ago due to a thunderstorm, but is currently back up and running.

The issue is fixed! It was indeed trying to access 6789 rather than 1337.

Wait, how did you post three comments in a row? For me it always just appends the third comment to the last comment, unless I am using the PM

time between the comments, comments merge if they were made within a short period of time
