I had originally written an application in Go that allowed users to install a UserScript in their browser and see when other users were typing messages and how far they had read.
Unfortunately, for various technical reasons, the program started running into some rather serious technical issues. Rather than introducing an extraordinary amount of complexity into the project, I decided to rewrite the entire thing in C++ with Qt. This is that project.
Install it here: https://sechat.quickmediasolutions.com
The application requires the following:
- C++ compiler with C++11 support
- CMake 3.2+
- Qt 5.4+
Because the application uses CMake, building sechatr is quite straightforward:
mkdir build cd build cmake .. make
Running in Docker
It is probably simpler to use Docker to build and run the application. Assuming Docker is installed, you can simple run:
docker build -t sechatr .
