I would like to implement an AJAX based chat widget (or module?) to SilverStripe. However, I'm not sure whether it's already implemented or not, so I would like to make sure first before starting the work that it's not already done.
If not, could you please open a widget (or module) creating task in GHOP?
well, in fact I have the whole chat ready so I only need to integrate it with SilverStripe. I'm pretty sure thatyou will not be able to make something really better yourself from scratch, as we have done a lot of testing and improvements, so I think that the best way to do for you is to wait for my release and then improve it the way you want ;) my chat includes emoticons, multiple tab chats and all the elementary stuff that any chat needs (and it works pretty fast =])
I'll need about one month to finish it or so... it's part of my other project and I have to get it all work. I'm worried that before this time I can't make it availible (well, maybe a few days earlier) check http://czat.openworlds.pl to see how it works (the pre alpha version)
