    onf-simple-chat

    npm

    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.

    There are Unix utilities such as wall and talk, but neither worked exactly as I wanted, and as usual, I wanted to learn by doing :)

    Only tested on Linux. It uses the select API, so it should be portable :)

    Installation

    1. npm i onf-simple-chat
    2. make (how to build depends on the platform, of course)

    Examples

    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:

    telnet localhost PORT
