Full Description

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 for more details.

The backend is powered by Mojolicious, while the
frontend is held together by the progressive JavaScript framework

Quick start guide

Snap Install

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.

Shell Install

curl | 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.

Invitation code

Note that to register, you need a invitation code. This code is printed to
screen as you start convos:
