Minchat for YunoHost

Integration level
Install Minchat with YunoHost

Lire ce readme en français.

This package allows you to install Minchat quickly and simply on a YunoHost server.
If you don't have YunoHost, please consult the guide to learn how to install it.


Minchat is a free minimalist chat application. It is based on wojtek77/chat, itself based on Gabriel Nava's tutorial.

Shipped version: 1.0




  • Simple web chat: only requires a browser ; no XMPP application.
  • No need for users to register. Just need the web address. But optional authorisation control.
  • On connection, the page is fed with the messages of the day
  • Args are in the URL as get arguments, so that you can share the URL or make it a favorite to avoid filling a form.
    Example :
  • Optionaly multi room


The setup is optional. If you leave it as is, there is a single unnamed room, opened to all users. If you want to customize the access control, edit the file conf/setup.ini (if missing, copy it from conf/sample/setup.ini). The interesting parameter is auth that indicates which user is authorized to which room.

In this example auth = John:Game,John:Family,Mary:Game,Tim:Family,admin:*,*:Public,*:,

  • John:Game,John:Family = John can access the Game room, the Family room
  • Mary:Game = Mary can access the Game room
  • Tim:Family = Tim can access the Family room
  • admin:* = admin can access all rooms
  • *:Public = everybody can acccess the Public room
  • *: = everybody can access the unnamed room

Hints for users

  • The URLs you send are linked or transformed to images when preceeded by a !
  • If multiple rooms are allowed by the administrator in the setup.ini, you can have several tabs opened to different rooms in the same browser.
