I hate to say this, but that chat applet rots.

well, I think every java applet does. It will slow down almost every system a lot. But looks like is the only solution, if we want to integrate irc with the forum.
Anyway, a java applet is easy to integrate, we just need to paste the code on this page.

The chat applet is not Java-based. It is Flash-based. Java isn't always that bad actually.

Ops! Sorry, I thougth you was talking about the one moe suggested to replace the current. We are looking for an irc client that can connect with #vectorlinux at freenode.

I am...

Then I am missing something, when I go to here http://www.jwirc.com/chat.html or here http://java.freenode.net/freenode/pjirc/ I get the Sun logo and a java console is opened, sorry if I am wrong  Embarrassed

FWIW and IMO, flash sucks. That's why I have flashblock on my SeaMonkey, one of the very few extensions I actually use... Roll Eyes

So far CGI:IRC is the lightest-weight web client I can find: http://cgiirc.org/ - I'm just not sure about freenode support but it sure seems like it'll do it without any problems.

that code works from here! I guess we could use it embebed on the forum, should be something like

Code:
elseif ($_GET["action"]=="chat") {
echo '
//moe´s html goes here
';
}

in the smf index.php, what do you think?
great idea.

I was testing it on a 128mb box, works great! It can be used with any server.

btw, it is written in perl, rigth?   Huh Grin

yeah, but -i was reviewing this- we need to deal with the smf code, may be is better idea to give the web chat a look like the default theme and put a link in the forum.

From what I gather, yes - it's written in perl.  Seems like the perfect gem for hanu - lightweight, fast, no fancy frills, written in perl Grin

Glad to see this discussion.  I logged into the chat room once and it ran slower than molasses running uphill in the wintertime.  I logged out again.  Of course, since it's just an IRC channel I can use xchat and not go in through the browser, but... a fast browser-based interface that doesn't use Flash or Java sounds great to me.

Perl is good for you  Grin

Dang.. I can't access that from my work comp. (damn proxy filters)

But I guess it would be good, so long as it can be embedded in a page here at the forums, that way the proxy wont block me either Wink

The first thing I thought was:
"This must be CGI based. It's obviously server-side anyway."

The second thing I thought was:
"There's no way this can have decent real time performance."

And that's unfortunately true... Sad
