Chat System - Back to the drawing board.

This is just a basic to-do or to-try list for me to work off of. If anyone has suggestions, ideas, critisizm or other, please reply here. My progress with various versions of my private chat system will be tracked here.

Existing systems to try to integrate:

BlaB! looks to be pretty promising. Let's hope it's a simple integration. Ballmer Peak first! Thumb Up

I am implementing this on 8 and perhaps another 2-3 sites when you are done. No pressure.

It's going to take a while. Anant Garg/Swadish's solution would work and I would have a released product if they didn't start dropping conversations at the last minute...

Let me know if there's anything I can do to help. But keep in mind that I'm still a noob myself Grin

So, I kinda got BlaB! working. See below. I'll implement a pseudo-copy here soon.

php-fusion.us/images/upload/blab_kinda_working_1.png
php-fusion.us/images/upload/blab_kinda_working_2.png

The only downside I see so far is it opens a new browser window (limited) for each chat session.

If everyone is OK with that, I'll continue php-fusion-izing it

EDIT: implemented the 0.0.1 alpha here. It doesn't log you in with your PHP-Fusion username, but it works.

Will be tweaking and testing the mechanics first, then making the infusion.

EDIT2: For some reason, I can't get it to render on the forum. That'll be the first problem to solve...

This is only enabled for a select few users at the moment.

Great effort, there is not much I can do to help (and I admit that freely) but rest assured you can count on whatever resources or cheers I may provide.

... and my thanks...

I announced that I will put this on 8 site, so maybe, maybe, if you need some help, you could move this thread out of admin only view?

I had an idea that may fix the problem with my previous version of this chat. I really liked that one and it was a shame that it was breaking at the final stages.

It may take a while to get it fixed, but I'd like to put BlaB! on hold for now and continue with my previous attempt since it was much easier to manage, much simpler, and more effective. Plus, it looked really good.

My solution is to track whether the user opens another tab or window with the same username connected and deny all subsequent connections to the chat and only leave the very first one active... there will be some complicated session/cookie tracking but I think I have it written down correctly.

More coming.

EDIT: If this version of my previous addon works out, v1.00a (Alpha) will have:
Online/Offline status per user
Full Facebook-style private chat
Complete Chat History per user
Administrative History Pruning
Theme System

Attached is my (mostly) working RC1 copy of my chat infusion. It is a full infusion as attached and works until it inexplicably drops a conversation.

There are a few triggers for it dropping a conversation.

  1. Session collision. Someone opens two tabs or two separate windows on the same PC/Browser using the same session name (built-in) which causes the .js to get confused.
  2. One of the users switches pages so often that the .js doesn't get time to load and track their session, resulting in the conversation dropping.
  3. False timeout. Someone opens a 2nd tab with the chat enabled, logs out of the site in the 2nd tab and the 1st tab is still showing as connected since it hasn't refreshed, but still can't receive or send chat since they had 2 tabs open.


They trigger the drop, but I don't know exactly what in these actions it's conflicting with or where to start looking to fix it.

sorry guys,

I havent had the time to work on this.

My workload at my engineering job just increased 10-fold, i started a 2nd job and will be doing contract cadd work for a private company, on top of my admin duties at all of my sites. open source dev has taken a back seat at the moment.

I plan to finish it, but i dont know when and I know i'll need help from the community to get it released. anyone that contributes code will share the credit.

Thanks for the help and kind words.

keep calm and carry on.

Sorry for my bad english i have made a onlinelist with the toolbar from lippke and the D1 Fusionschat (works with gmail-facebook-style-jquery-chat script from Avant Garg) from Deeone. Here is a screenshot :
harlekin-power.harlekin304.de/images/imagehost/ef05c8098cdb2b34e39c80515fc037bd.jpg

But the chat is without smileys and sound in the moment. I work on a smiley and soundintegration, but i am a amateur and so i need some time for it.

Hello,

I made a Bridge between Fusion and PCPIn Chat.

Maybe an option?

Currently I am working on the last bug on it.
 
skpacman
The solution I was working on is more like Harlekin's

jQuery fb/g+-like chat

@Harlekin - Would you happen to have a copy of D1's chat? I'd like to see if he was able to solve the problems I'm having, since we're all using the same base script here.

I know, that chat looked useful. Too bad it requires payment from that site although anyone who has bought it can rightfully redistribute it.

I have a good chat I implemented into fusion but I have no clue where it is. I may have it on my other pc which isn't 100% working right now. Anyway I am in the process of toying with a fb/gmail chatting addon.

The screenshot from the chat with the toolbar is from my testsite where i test before it come on my side. The D1-Fusionschat scriptis from http://www.deeone.de
