Introduction/Gallery

You can see it in action or use it on https://dystroy.org/miaou (anybody can create a room for public or private use on this server).

Discussing features, bugs, problems, issues

Please come discuss it in one of the dedicated chat rooms Chat on Miaou and Chat on Miaou before you create an issue in the GitHub tracker (please note that they're currently more active between 8 and 19 GMT).

Installing a server

If you want to install Miaou, the installation documentation is available here.

And if you run your own server, please tell us.

Contributing

As described in the help, Miaou is mostly coded in JavaScript. Stuff includes node, PostgreSQL, OAuth2, socket.io, WebRTC, express, Bluebird, Redis, Jade, Passport.js, hu.js, jQuery, sass/scss, Uglify-js, gulp, travis-ci, and nginx.

Many features are implemented as plugins, and that's where you should look first: Plugin developpement.

If you have the ability and will to contribute, come and discuss with us. The best landing place is usually the Miaou room where you can ping @dystroy or @Florian.

Help is welcome but remember:

  1. Come and discuss with us before to code
  2. And, always test before doing a pull request.
