NAME

Convos - Multiuser IRC proxy with web interface

VERSION

0.8604

DESCRIPTION

Convos is to a multi-user IRC Proxy, that also provides a easy to use Web interface. Feature list:

  • Always online

    The backend server will keep you logged in and logs all the activity in your archive.

  • Archive

    All chats will be logged and indexed, which allow you to search in earlier conversations.

  • Avatars

    The chat contains profile pictures which can be retrieved from Facebook or from gravatar.com.

  • Include external resources

    Links to images and video will be displayed inline. No need to click on the link to view the data.

Architecture principles

  • Keep the JS simple and manageable

  • Use Redis to manage state / publish subscribe

  • Bootstrap-based user interface

RUNNING CONVOS

Convos has sane defaults so after installing Convos you should be able to just run it:

  # Install
  $ cpanm Convos
  # Run it
  $ convos daemon --listen http://*:8080

The steps above will install and run Convos in a single process. This is a very quick way to get started, but we incourage to run Convos as one backend and one frontend:

  # Start the backend first
  $ convos backend start

  # Then start the frontend
  $ convos daemon --listen http://*:8080

This allow you to upgrade and restart the frontend, without having to reconnect to the IRC servers.

See Convos::Manual::Running for more details.

CUSTOM TEMPLATES

Some parts of the Convos templates can include custom content. Example:

  # Create a directory where you can store the templates
  $ mkdir -p custom-convos/vendor

  # Edit the template you want to customize
  $ $EDITOR custom-convos/vendor/login_footer.html.ep

  # Start convos with CONVOS_TEMPLATES set. Without /vendor at the end
  $ CONVOS_TEMPLATES=$PWD/custom-convos convos daemon --listen http://*:5000

Any changes to the templates require the server to restart.

The templates that can be customized are:

  • vendor/login_footer.html.ep

    This template will be included below the form on the /login page.

  • vendor/register_footer.html.ep

    This template will be included below the form on the /register page.

  • vendor/wizard.html.ep

    This template will be included below the form on the /wizard page that a new visitor sees after registering.
