A while ago I was looking for something like this. It appears to be a bit buggy but I love its simplicity. (having flashbacks to the old IRC days) I'll be hanging out in http://tlk.io/producthunt for the next 15 mins while I wait for my flight. cc @liveink

Entering a channel name is optional, but makes it easier to remember

  1. Quick start

    Create new chat rooms in seconds. No invite or signup necessary. — Simple!
  2. Privacy is yours

    You can use a nickname without login. Or use Twitter to get your name and avatar. — Simple!
  3. Easy to share

    Share the URL anywhere you like. No need in forcing people to install the right app for just a quick chat. — Simple!
  4. On the go

    Chat in a browser tab at your desk or take it with you on your tablet or phone. You can even embed a chat on your own site. — Simple!

Note: The above example is just a demo and not a real chat. Here's a live example: tlk.io/hey.

Embed

Get embed code
  • * Optional: You can customize how the chat looks by adding your own CSS file. It will override the default.

  • If you already have a login for your users, you can use their names for this chat too. In the embed code, add a data-nickname attribute with the user's name. Like data-nickname="somename".

2. Copy the code below onto your site.

That's it. Done! You should see your chat like the demo below.

  • Tips & Tricks

    1. If you type @ + username, like @matt, it will highlight the message to that user. Click the circle avatar to quickly add it to the input.
    2. If you use a hash tag (#), it automatically turns them into channel links, like #hey.
    3. If you paste a link to an image, it will show the image inline. Also, pasted URLs will turn into links.
    4. There is some (limited) Markdown support: __bold___italic_`code`~~strike~~* list> blockquote--- hr[alt](link)![alt](image.jpg)
    5. If you're using tlk.io as a Fluid desktop app, to login with twitter you need to "whitelist" it first. Go to Preferences > Whitelist and add *twitter.com*, see screenshot.
