The impetus for this project was to chat with others when logging into a system remotely (perhaps pair programming in a chroot) or working on a system without an X window system.
Only tested on Linux. It uses the
select API, so it should be portable :)
npm i onf-simple-chat
make(how to build depends on the platform, of course)
Start the server.
npm run chat
By default it binds to port 3333, but this can be changed, i.e.:
npm run chat -- 1992
Clients connect via
telnet localhost PORT
