ChronoChat

ChronoChat is a multiparty chat application that demostrates our synchronization primitive that we call ChronoSync.

Note that after you click to close ChronoChat, it will keep running on your system tray. To restore it to normal size window, you have to click on the system tray icon (normally on the upper right corner of your screen). Clicking on the dock won't work for now and is still on the to-do list (because I'm using qt for gui, not the native Cocoa framework).

Known Issues


  1. When you switch to a new room, you'll temporarily see yourself in two nodes for a minute or so. It won't affect others, just yourself. Hopefully it's not so disturbing.
  2. Sometimes you may not get the most up-to-date chat history.

For those who wants (or is forced to) compile from source code


Compilation steps for OSX

  1. Install MacPorts, if not yet installed (http://www.macports.org/), configure NDN ports repository and install NFD if you don't have it yet.

     sudo port install nfd
     sudo nfd-start
    
  2. Install ChronoChat dependencies

     sudo port install pkgconfig protobuf-cpp boost qt4-mac
    
  3. Fetch source code with submodules

     git clone --recursive git://github.com/named-data/ChronoChat
    

If you already cloned repository, you can update submodules this way:

    git submodule update --init
  1. Configure and install ChronoSync

     cd ChronoChat/ChronoSync
     ./waf configure
     ./waf
     sudo ./waf install
    
  2. Configure and build ChronoChat

     cd ..
     PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/local/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/lib/pkgconfig ./waf configure
     ./waf
    

Congratulations! build/ChronoChat.app is ready to use (on a Mac).

Compilation steps for Ubuntu 12.04, 13.10, 14.04

  1. Configure NDN PPA repository and install NFD if you don't have it yet.

     sudo apt-get install nfd
    
  2. Install ChronoChat dependencies

     sudo apt-get install libprotobuf-dev protobuf-compiler libevent-dev
     sudo apt-get install libboost1.48-all-dev
     sudo apt-get install qt4-dev-tools
    
  3. Fetch source code with submodules

     git clone --recursive git://github.com/named-data/ChronoChat
    

If you already cloned repository, you can update submodules this way:

    git submodule update --init
  1. Configure and install ChronoSync

     cd ChronoChat/ChronoSync
     ./waf configure
     ./waf
     sudo ./waf install
     sudo ldconfig
    
  2. Configure and build ChronoChat

     cd ..
     ./waf configure
     ./waf
    

Congratulations! build/ChronoChat is ready to use. Do not forget to start ccnd and configure FIB before using ChronoChat.
