Chat Everywhere !

What is Chat Everywhere ?

Chat Everywhere gives you the possibility to easily put a real-time discussion forum on your website. It allows extended (Irc-like) commands, several levels of hierarchy and an easy to modify configuration file.

The goal of this project is to provide webmasters with a simple to use, but very configurable, chat zone on their site. The requirements on the client side are as low as a java enabled browser (most of them are). The server is very light (coded in standard, portable C), and can run on very small servers. It does not require admin (root) rights.

What is it not ?

Chat Everywhere is not intended to become ultimately a full-featured Irc server and client. My objective is keep it simple!

Chat Everywhere should be compilable and installable in 5 minutes, not requiring any expertise at Unix system administration, nor Java coding. It should not need any special hardware (in fact it runs quite well on a simple 486/DX with Linux). It should not require the client to go through installing something just to go chatting.

I think I achieved this goal until now, tell me what you think of it!
