  • macOS High Sierra (10.13.6)
  • Qt Creator 4.1.0
  • Qt 5.7.0
  • Clang 7.0
  • MySQL Version 15.1 Distrib 10.1.26-MariaDB

Architecture

Depicted below is the software architecture which illustrates the dependency of the C++ classes to each other:

Communication model

Netchat and Options define the core messenger system. Database, Encryption and Configuration handle the raw data input/output. Config File sets the required configuration parameters for the database communication.

Usage

Since this repository is the successor of p2p-Netchat, the usage is similar.

If the database server and the configuration file is set up correctly, you can begin texting right from the start.
