@phenomlab oh no, that is 1 cent on the video, but you are right, symbols are similar… I just converted it to $1 , since it is more intuitive in daily life…
IRC Server/Client - Chat App with NodeBB
Hello @all @phenomlab
NodeBB haven’t got a great chat plugin or native chat system.
Global chat plugin is very good but he haven’t got moderation tools and it’s a problem.
For my test, I research a good IRC server for Debian 11 to install on my VM.
I would like to have Moderation Tools and a GUI for the Configuration (Moderation ,channels etc…)
For the Client, I have install The Lounge on the VM, it’s a server client IRC wirth GUI, he is very great
There may be better than IRC servers/clients, but the IRC server/The lounge combo has the advantage of being quite simple without necessarily having user databases.
Afterwards, if we have a app or system that can interface with the NodeBB user database, that would be great. (IRC server too)
Thanks my friends
@DownPW My personal take on this is that NodeBB is a forum application first and foremost, and it’s PM system is arguably much better than those whom have previously attempted this (Flarum for example). With applications such as Discord, I (personally) see little room for a product like NodeBB to compete, and, a chat plugin would defeat the objective of a forum in the sense that it is not designed to retain archived information useful for other visitors to the site.
In addition, I see this as harmful to Google searches and general SEO. The chat plugin discussions would not be public, meaning that any useful information contained in the chats themselves are inaccessible to others.
So sorry Mark @phenomlab for my answer delay, I’ve been pretty busy lately
I respect your point of view on this.
however, I would like to test this even for fun.
I see rocketchat too but I have no fund a great tutorial for install.
I’m still looking for a way to interface the NodeBB database (user/password) with another chat application.
The goal would be for a NodeBB user to be able to use their nodeBB credentials to connect to chat (Irc or other applications)
