hack.chat

hack.chat is a minimal, distraction-free, accountless, logless, disappearing chat service which is easily deployable as your own service. The current client comes bundled with LaTeX rendering provided by KaTeX and code syntax highlighting provided by highlight.js.

A list of software developed for the hack.chat framework can be found at the 3rd party software list repository. This includes bots, clients, docker containers, etc.

This is a backwards compatible continuation of the work by Andrew Belt. The server code has been updated to ES6 along with several new features including new commands and hot-reload of the commands/protocol. There is also documentation and a changelog.

Developer Installation

  1. Clone the repository: git clone https://github.com/hack-chat/main.git

  2. Change the directory: cd main

  3. Install the dependencies: npm install

    If you change the websocketPort option during the config setup then these changes…

Some time ago, I found this nice application, and my contribution was to provide it with a syntax highlight which is pretty nice.
