Convos - Multiuser chat application

Convos is a multiuser chat application that runs in your web browser.

The supported chat protocol is currently IRC, but Convos can be extended to support other protocols as well.

See convos.chat for more details.

The backend is powered by Mojolicious, while the frontend is held together by the progressive JavaScript framework Svelte.

Quick start guide

See "Getting started" for other options and more information.

Shell Install

curl https://convos.chat/install.sh | sh -
./convos/script/convos daemon;

Start the daemon

That's it! After the two commands above, you can point your browser to http://localhost:3000 and start chatting.
