But you probably know nothing about it yet, so I’ll tell you now:
LlamaSlayers Ajax Chat is my chatroom system. In my system, everyone is equal except for a few things like deleting old chatrooms and sending global messages (only a specific IP address can do that, but I hope to have a better authentication system soon)
I’ve tried a few chat systems in the past, and none really worked the way I wanted them to. IRC required extra programs on the user’s computer and allowed people to impersonate each other, blueimp.net Ajax-Chat required a database and stuffed 5MB of chat messages into it in the first five minutes.
Here’s a list of the top features (in my opinion) of my chat system:
- Server-push and Reverse Ajax architecture
- Anti-impersonation (little icons next to each message based on IP address and user agent)
- Multiple chatrooms, more can be created as easily as joining them
- Open source
- Easy installation
Here’s the audience participation part:
I need your help with suggesting features, finding bugs, and getting the word out about my new chat system.
