Convos - Multiuser IRC proxy with web interface
Convos is to a multi-user IRC Proxy, that also provides a easy to use Web interface. Feature list:
The backend server will keep you logged in and logs all the activity in your archive.
All chats will be logged and indexed, which allow you to search in earlier conversations.
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.
Convos has sane defaults so after installing Convos you should be able to just run it:
# Install $ cpanm Convos # Run it $ convos backend & $ convos daemon
The above works, but if you have a lot of users you probably want to use hypnotoad instead of
$ hypnotoad $(which convos)
The command above will start a full featured, UNIX optimized, preforking non-blocking webserver. Run the same command again, and the webserver will hot reload the source code without loosing any connections.
You can also customize the config by setting
MOJO_CONFIG before running any of the commands above. Example:
$ MOJO_CONFIG=$HOME/.convos.conf convos daemon
You can use https://github.com/Nordaaker/convos/blob/release/convos.conf as config file template.
Keep the JS simple and manageable
Use Redis to manage state / publish subscribe
Archive logs in plain text format, use ack to search them.
Bootstrap-based user interface
Convos can be configured with the following environment variables:
Set CONVOS_MANUAL_BACKEND to a true value if you're starting Convos with
morboand want to run the backend embedded.
Set CONVOS_DEBUG for extra debug output to STDERR.
Disable the frontend from starting the backend.
Set how often to send "keep-alive" through the web socket. Default is every 30 second.
Set MOJO_IRC_DEBUG for extra IRC debug output to STDERR.
