Build Status


Waves is a viewer for public chat logs stored in a remoteStorage account using the Kosmos JSON-LD format for chat messages. Kosmos Chat is an open-source software suite for group chats, based entirely on open standards and protocols.

One can log IRC and XMPP MUC channels live using a Hubot bot and the hubot-remotestorage-logger plugin for example.

Please contact someone via IRC in #kosmos on Libera.Chat, in case you want to have your channel logged by a Kosmos bot and your channel history added to our public Waves instance.
