Live Chat Support in rails


#1

I have a ruby on rails web site, and I need to implement a Live Chat
customer support, most of them are in php, but I would like to get one
in rails and to integrate this with my current web application…
do you know any live chat in rails? Thank you

I don’t know of any formal libraries but there have been a few
implementations thrown around.

Campfire:

  • Page polls every 5 seconds or so to the server for new chats
  • Chats saved on server as XML (I believe), though they could be
    database
    entries but that might be slower.

Comet implementation (not a fan of the name, but hey, though this is the
more difficult implementation)

  • Use Flash or a Java applet to open a socket to the chat server and do
    your own communication.

AJAX in Rails makes this kind of app quite easy to make. Check out the
available javascript helpers, you’ll find something that will help you.

I guess you are a beginner in Rails. If so then I suggest that you
work right through a good tutorial such as railstutorial.org, which is
free to use online. That will show you the basics of Rails.

Once you have done that, if you still get the problem, and still
cannot work it out then have a look at the Rails Guide on Debugging,
which will show you techniques that can be used to debug your code.

If you have to post messages in future then please paste them in as
text rather than an image. It is easier to follow the thread if
everything is in the message.
