Chat Room development


#1

Hi,

I was wondering if it is possible to create a chat room using Ruby/Rails
(similar to the Java ones used by Talkcity, Yahoo, etc).

Not many people will be using it since it’s just for an educational
experiment. If possible, will it be able to insert the text immediately?
I mean, I don’t know of any techniques besides Java applets that can do
that, which is why I ask here.

Thanks!

Well…
The makers of Ruby on Rails managed to do it nicely at

yes but i believe the purpose of the request was to find code to
implement - not to use as is like campfire from 37signals did. I myself
would like to know how to code up a chat too… any other ideas?

Hi, I would recommend doing google search. For example, I was able to
find the following:

Good luck,
