SimplyChat for BuddyPress

Written by



SimplyChat is an instant messaging plugin that allows you to create groups and send personal messages, specially developed for BuddyPress. Accounts, Groups, Friends, and Profile Images are automatically synced with BuddyPress, so when you create a group on BuddyPress, you can start messaging with group members. You will also be able to chat with your BuddyPress friends and create public or private group chat. Plugin is written in PHP, JQuery, Javascript, Socket.IO and designed with CSS. This script uses a WebSocket Connection, which provides instant messaging between the client and the server.
