Chat applications are super important right now. Most people are probably using at least one chat app, such as Facebook Messenger, Slack, Discord, etc.
There’s been posts here before inquiring about chat solutions so I took some time to investigate some plug-n-play solutions today. Of course, there’s always the option of building a messaging system inside of Tadabase but we’re going to do something different instead.
The 2 solutions I’ve found today are DeadSimpleChat and Now4Real. Both have Free tiers available for testing. Both of these solutions look like real solid ways to offer an in-app chat for internal app usage.
Thank you for posting this. I was hoping to use the chat bubble instead of iFrame but when I add it to a page it doesn’t work. I added it to the header code and it works but the app won’t load any content other than the menu and the chat room. Any suggestions? Would also like to move the chat bubble up and over a little too if that’s an option.
Hi all! I have been working on a native chat/comments app for the last few months that I’m happy to share with the community.
It is all native tadabase, and the comments are stored in tables. I borrowed Tim’s pop-out sidebar design and used that as the starting point. I’ll try and share a copy of it this week for anyone who is interested.
@tim.young how hard would it be for Tadabase to upgrade to TinyMCE 6? With version 6 I think I could create a pretty sophisticated native chat/comments app like Slack without any other 3rd party plugins necessary.
