Ghost Chat

Ghost chat is a standalone, multi-platform, chat as an overlay on windowed/windowed full-screen applications written in Typescript with the help of Electron and Vue.

It lets you connect to a channel without the need to open Twitch/Kick in your browser which comes in handy if you happen to have only one monitor, or you want to have your chat on your main screen. It is not only limited to Twitch and Kick, you can connect to any chat via the external sources option. Just enter the chat overlay URL and you are good to go.

Installation / Usage

A detailed description can be found in our discord server's faq section and on our wiki.

Additional info

Translators needed

Since GhostChat uses i18n, it's easy to add new language support, but I need you as a community. So if you are a native speaker of a language that is not yet included you can check en-US.json and create a new file in this directory with the language ID as the name.

A reference to what the key should look like can be found here.

Just search for your language and choose the key as the filename for the JSON file. If the file already exists and it's just missing some translations you'd like to add then please add them in there, otherwise copy over the parts of en-US.json that you want to translate and replace the English text with your language-specific translations.

Once you are done with the translations, create a PR here on GitHub or post them in the #feature-request channel so that we can add them.

If you have any other suggestions for features, or you've found a bug, feel free to go to create an issue/new feature request either here on GitHub or in Discord.
