Freichat

How hard would it be to integrate FreiChat into UNA.  I like the feature it provides on my humhub site musthavepets.com

Would be nice to have something like it on UNA platform to replace the instant messenger that is in dolphin. Seems like it could be done easily for a good coder.  So, I will pay someone to develop this feature for me.  Please look at how it works on http://musthavepets.com or if you already know about FreiChat - thats cool. I am looking for ideas for instant messaging between site members that is not based on a block or some other restrictions. I like the idea of chatting from any page - like facesucks.

About the mod for humhub.

FreiChat is a free chat software which works as a SaaS for your Humhub website.
FreiChat automatically integrates with your site's login by fetching the current user data.

Features:

  • Easy installation
  • Send/receive files
  • Facebook like chatbar
  • Minimize and close chat boxes
  • Able to chat even while you browse different pages.
  • Smiley support, clickable urls, image previews
  • Mobile compatibility with responsive design
  • Audio/Video conference

Installation

  1. Install directly from Humhub marketplace in your site admin page
    Or you can download and install using zip file from here: https://github.com/evnix/freichat-integrations/releases

How it works

When you install the module, FreiChat generates an unique token for your website which is stored in our servers.
When someone logs in to your website, FreiChat servers recieves the user data and maps it with your token.
The chat messages between users are received/sent over an encrypted connection using websockets.

  • I bought many of his modules. We need those guys developing for UNA

    • Yes, AndrewP let his site go and of course the internet hos took it over.  I was sad to see AndrewP go as he was top notch; despite the history of him with Boonex which I think was undue if the story I heard is correct.

      This does look nice; it looks to be similar to CometChat but with better pricing.  You have a P-P chat; sort of like JOT but better, as well as having chat rooms.  I need to look into this.  I was using CometChat on a Dolphin site and it came with a Dolphin plugin to bring in members' name and avatar.  However, CometChat started getting greedy etc.  I haven't updated the CometChat on the Dolphin site in a few years.

      If I have time, I will look into this but if someone else takes it that is fine as well since the OP wants the connector as soon as he can get it.

        • Thanks Geek Girl . Wonder how hard it would be to make a module or App for it.

          • You wouldn't need a module or app for this; you would add the integration into FreiChat.  I am not up on how UNA handles sessions but I am going to guess that it is along the lines of a session cookie that holds the member info that is logged in.  Say there is the member ID or whatever UNA uses; you use that ID to query the database to get the member's name and avatar to pass along to FreiChat; It then sees the member logged into UNA and logs them into FreiChat to start chatting with other members.

            • Understood. On my humhub site it is a module just install with one click and nothing to configure.  That is ideal in my opinion.  Should not be difficult but it is beyond my capabilities.

                                  • Is this a hosted chat or can one download and install it on their own server?  Hosted chats have their place, such in shared hosting, but it is also nice to not have yet another third party vendor handling things; UNA already has way too many third party vendor code; in my opinion of course.

                                                                                              xxxxxxxxx

                                                                                              We did try to create a plugin for UNA but their documentation is very scarce.

                                                                                              This is slowing down the process a lot. 

                                                                                              We might have to email them again for some examples that might help us get started.

                                                                                              xxxxxxxxx

                                                                                              So for the lack of documentations we would have had what we wanted.

                                                                                              How do we get around this?
