FINALLY!

BBliveChat is, well, live! :P
After a tragedy where a third party service (Pusher) discontinued the API used to power BBchat (viewtopic.php?f=17&t=4761&hilit=bbchat), we had to reinvent the wheel and develop a new chat. This time the decision to NOT use a third party API as a chat engine was made.
A chat that exclusively runs on the same phpBB server your forum is running on was born!


couple of screens:

Some of the main features:
-Does not depend on any chat engine API. It has its own custom engine!
-Modern front end script written from the ground up with Typescript (https://www.typescriptlang.org/) and a mix of PHP templating just like WordPress plugins.
-Modular custom addons (you can install addons to enhance functionality further, like sidebar, darkmode etc etc)
-Live time stamps twitter style (For Example, 30 seconds ago, yesterday etc etc)
-Support multiple languages (relies on the phpBB language packs installed )
-Super modern and slick face with its own dedicated chat page (just like a modern app should be!)
-modern and easy to use mobile layout
-custom scrollbar with auto-pause for reading and scroll-down on click interaction youtube's chat style
-Support CMDs style for chat interaction. (For example you type a specific cmd and press enter to run the action.) See cmds here: https://gyazo.com/72048831d215638a39d5560c4116ffbd.png
-online list that automatically updates and its based on room user presence
-Quote like a boss! Hight the text and wait for the "quote" button to show up https://gyazo.com/9f20e062f0d62d189923411bdd875e7f.png
-kick users by x amount of min.
-private own user room with invite system for other users
-configurable rooms, with announcements, group permissions, SVG support and more
-custom premium SVG smilies pack
-Modern color palette preset
-sounds options
-sidebar
-auto YouTube links embed
-many more!!!

I guess they want an option to prevent anyone from posting links and email address in chat.

Whats the point though? If a user is going to spam then they will do so via the board anyway.

I said it because one of my forums is at the university, people publish or request books, notes, etc. What I would not like is that they stop posting in the forum and only talk about those topics in the chat.

by the way, very good job, as always!

@franht1 yeah it is possible, but I would take this as custom work. It's a quite a bit of changes...
