README

XMPP Chat Travis Bountysource bounties Translation status

Converse is a web based XMPP/Jabber chat client.

You can either use it as a webchat app, or you can integrate it into your own website.

It's 100% client-side JavaScript, HTML and CSS and the only backend required is a modern XMPP server.

Please support this project via Patreon or Liberapay
