ChronoChat-js is a javacript version of ChronoChat based on NDN-JS and ChronoSync.
ChronoChat-js does not require any installation. Just open the file: index.html in a browser, input user name, hub prefix and chatroom name, and then start chatting.
You can also try the online demo at http://named-data.github.io/ChronoChat-js/ . (Try opening two browser tabs with different user names.)
This uses the NDN-JS ChronoSync2013 protocol which is documented at http://named-data.net/doc/ndn-ccl-api/chrono-sync2013.html .
These are the major parts in the source code package:
- ndn.js: The NDN-JS library source code, including ChronoSync2013.
- chrono-chat.js: chat interest and data processing as well as other actions like leave and heartbeat.
- chatbuf.js: The chat data packet format definition.
- Protobuf/: The ProtoBuf.js library source code.
- Web page
- index.html: The web chat interface.
- page.css: The css file of the web page.
ChronoChat-js currently does not perform any data authentication. The private key used to encrypt user data packets is hard-coded in ndn-js and shared by all the users on the Web.
