talkbox is a small and simple webchat built with node.js and jQuery. Currently, there isn’t any spam filtering, also nobody claims it’s secure.
But: It’s super fast to deploy, has a minimal footprint and you might be able to learn something while looking at it.
An instance running: http://talkbox.q1cc.net
Currently we have:
- xmpp-connector to have jabber/xmpp-users join your chat
- coloured nicknames!
- content embedding functionality for pictures and many websites like youtube, vimeo, etc.
- markdown support (github-flavoured)
It couldn’t be simpler!
