Convos - Multiuser chat application
Convos is a multiuser chat application that runs in your web browser.
The supported chat protocol is currently IRC, but Convos can be extended to support other protocols as well.
See convos.by for more details.
Quick start guide
Install Convos in seconds on Ubuntu and other snap supported Linux distributions with:
snap install convos
Installing a snap is very quick. Snaps are secure. They are isolated with all of their dependencies. Snaps also auto update when a new version is released.
curl https://convos.by/install.sh | sh - ./convos/script/convos daemon;
Start the daemon
That's it! After the two commands above, you can point your browser to http://localhost:3000 and start chatting.
Note that to register, you need a invitation code. This code is printed to screen as you start convos:

Other deployment strategies
Note! "Heroku" should be deployed from the stable branch.
"stable" is the branch you should use, if you want to clone and run Convos, instead of just running the install command above.
"master" is for developers. It's mostly stable, but might require extra tools and packages to run.
