WebChatty

npm version build status

WebChatty is a fast-paced web-based forum with a threaded discussion structure. The Node.js-based WebChatty server hosts the chatty web service and the Single Page Application (SPA) frontend. The web service implements versions 1 and 2 of the existing WinChatty API and adds additional WebChatty-specific functionality.

Features

  • Small page load sizes. The service-based SPA architecture minimizes the amount of redundant HTML transferred to the user.
  • Push technology. New replies and threads are sent to the browser as soon as they happen. New replies appear in the browser automatically. No need to manually refresh the page.
  • Reflow button instantly re-sorts the threads to place active posts on top.
  • Multimedia content embedded in posts. Raw images, imgur (including gifv and albums), gfycat, youtube, and vimeo content are shown inline.
  • Custom tabs. Save a post, author, filter, etc. for later quick filtering.
  • Cloud synchronization for collapsed threads. Collapsed threads carry over between browser sessions and between WebChatty desktop and mobile clients.
