Erlchat

Erlchat is a simple chat server built using the Chicago Boss web framework (www.chicagoboss.org) for Erlang (www.erlang.org).

It borrows the UI from Chatify and basically switches out the backend.

Running it

Have Erlang and OTP in your path. I suggest using Kerl (www.github.com/spawngrid/kerl).

  • Fork the repo
  • Make
  • Run ./start-dev.sh

Point your browser to http://localhost:8001 and chat away.

The above expects a copy of the Chicago Boss tree to be in an adjacent directory, ie.
