Instant Messaging


#1

i am building an app that will need the ability of insant messaging
within browser similar to google talk.

here is a nice plugin i found:

i dont mind having to use a non-rails plugin but wondering if there
are any other ideas out there?

thanks,

What instant messaging protocol do you want to use? I suggest
XMPP/Jabber. (This also is what Google Talk uses)

I didn’t take a look at that plugin you provided, but if you just want
to send XMPP messages I’d suggest a self-made socket-based solution.
