Converse.js is an open source webchat client, that runs in the browser and can be integrated into any website.
It's similar to Facebook chat, but also supports multi-user chatrooms.
It's possible to enable single-site-login, whereby users already authenticated in your website will also automatically be logged in on the chat server, but you will have to pre-authenticate them on your server. You can refer to the documentation for more info.

Integration into other frameworks
- collective.xmpp.chat is an add-on for Plone that uses Converse.js. Together with collective.xmpp.core, it provides for single-signon-support (SSO) and also enables you to manually or automatically register your Plone users onto your XMPP server.
- django-conversejs is an app that makes it easer to integrate Converse.js into Django. It adds single-signon-support (SSO) support and a database model to store XMPP credentials.
- roundcube-converse.js-xmpp-plugin is a plugin for Roundcube Webmail.
- ConverseJS plugin for Wordpress.
If you have integrated Converse.js into any other CMS or framework, please let me know and I'll mention it on this page.
You can log in with any existing XMPP account. There is also a list of public XMPP providers on xmpp.net.
Is it secure?
Converse.js itself makes encrypted HTTPS requests to a connection manager, which will make an SSL/TLS encrypted connection to an XMPP server (if the server supports it).
Logging in happens via SASL.
That said, the developers don't assume any liability for any loss or damages as a result of using this software or demo. Use at your own risk.
The chat client will disconnect whenever you reload the page. If you want the user's session to persist across page reloads, you can establish an authenticated connection on the server side and then attach to this connection in your browser.
Converse.js already supports this usecase, but you'll have to do some integration work yourself.
The documentation is included in the source download under the docs folder, or can be read online.
We use the Jasmine testing framework to write tests. Tests can be run in the browser (just open tests.html) or in the commandline via ``grunt test``.
