Usage

You can import it as a custom component:

  <vue-advanced-chat
    :current-user-id="currentUserId"
    :rooms="JSON.stringify(rooms)"
    :messages="JSON.stringify(messages)"

      return {
        currentUserId: '1234',
        rooms: [],
        messages: [],
        roomActions: [
          { name: 'inviteUser', title: 'Invite User' },
          { name: 'removeUser', title: 'Remove User' },
          { name: 'deleteRoom', title: 'Delete Room' }
        ]
      }
    }
  }
</script>

Important notes

vue-advanced-chat component is performance oriented, hence you have to follow specific rules to make it work properly.

  • Use array assignement instead of push method
// DO THIS
const rooms = []
for (let i = 0; i < res.length; i++) {
  rooms.push(res)
}
this.rooms = rooms

// DON'T DO THIS
for (let i = 0; i < res.length; i++) {
  this.rooms.push(res)
}
// DO THIS
this.rooms[i].typingUsers = [...this.rooms[i].typingUsers, typingUserId]

// DON'T DO THIS
this.rooms[i].typingUsers.push(typingUserId)
  • To add or replace an item inside an array, use spread operator
// DO THIS
this.rooms[roomIndex] = room
this.rooms = [...this.rooms]

// DON'T DO THIS
this.rooms[roomIndex] = room

// AND DON'T DO THIS
this.rooms.push(room)
  • Follow the UI loading pattern by updating messagesLoaded prop every time a new room is fetched
fetchMessages({ room, options }) {
  this.messagesLoaded = false

  // use timeout to imitate async server fetched data
  setTimeout(() => {
    this.messages = []
    this.messagesLoaded = true
  })
}

Props data structure

Your props must follow a specific structure to display rooms and messages correctly:

Rooms prop

rooms="[
  {
    roomId: '1',
    roomName: 'Room 1',
    avatar: 'assets/imgs/people.png',
    unreadCount: 4,
    index: 3,
    lastMessage: {
      _id: 'xyz',
      content: 'Last message received',
      senderId: '1234',
      username: 'John Doe',
      timestamp: '10:20',
      saved: true,
      distributed: false,
      seen: false,
      new: true
    },
    users: [
      {
        _id: '1234',
        username: 'John Doe',
        avatar: 'assets/imgs/doe.png',
        status: {
          state: 'online',
          lastChanged: 'today, 14:30'
        }
      },
      {
        _id: '4321',
        username: 'John Snow',
        avatar: 'assets/imgs/snow.png',
        status: {
          state: 'offline',
          lastChanged: '14 July, 20:00'
        }
      }
    ],
    typingUsers: [ 4321 ]
  }
]"
  • If you add the index property, your rooms will be ordered using this value. index can be any sortable value, like a string, datetime, timestamp, etc.

  • For each room user, you can add the status property, which can hold the state and lastChanged properties:

    • state can be 'online' or 'offline'
    • lastChanged is the date when state was last modified.
  • typingUsers is an array of all the users who are currently writing a message

Messages prop

Message objects are rendered differently depending on their type. Text, emoji, image, video and file types are supported.

Each message object has a senderId field which holds the id of the corresponding agent. If senderId matches the currentUserId prop, specific UI and actions will be implemented.

Notes:

  • username will be displayed on each message of corresponding agents if at least 3 users are in the room
  • system is used to show messages with a specific centered display
  • indexId can be used if you need to change a message ID that is already displayed in a room, this preventing an animation glitch. For example, when you don't know in advance the message ID your backend will create.

Message states:

  • saved: true one checkmark
  • distributed: true two checkmarks
  • seen: true two blue checkmarks
  • deleted: true grey background with deleted message text
  • failure: true red clickable failure icon

Using with Firestore

Source code

You can find the source code to implement a full featured chat app using Firebase/Firestore inside the demo folder.
To test it using your own Firebase project:

  • Setup Cloud Firestore (to store users and rooms) and Realtime Database (to store users online status)
  • Clone this repository: git clone https://github.com/antoine92190/vue-advanced-chat.git
  • Inside demo/src/firestore/index.js file, replace the line const config = ... by your own Firebase config
  • Go inside demo folder and run npm run serve

Data structure

If you decide to use the same code as in the demo folder to create your chat app, you need to have a specific Firestore data structure.
To help you get started, I added in demo/src/App.vue a method addData to initialize some data on your Firestore database.

Users collection

users: {
  USER_ID_1: {
    _id: '1',
    username: 'User 1'
  },
  USER_ID_2: {
    _id: '2',
    username: 'User 2'
  },
  USER_ID_3: {
    _id: '3',
    username: 'User 2'
  }
}

Rooms collection

chatRooms: {
  ROOM_ID_1: {
    users: ['1', '3']
  },
  ROOM_ID_2: {
    users: ['1', '2', '3']
  }
}

Messages collection inside a room document

messages: {
  MESSAGE_ID_1: {
    content: 'My first message to <usertag>John</usertag>',
    senderId: '2',
    timestamp: 'December 11, 2019 at 4:00:00 PM',
    seen: true
  }
}

Notes

  • You need to create a composite index to order rooms by last message received. The easiest way to do it is to create a room, then click the error message url in the browser debugging console.
