This chat uses
WebSocket to communicate with the server,
localStorage to store preferences and a cookie named
sk to restore a session in case of reconnection. If either of these are not supported by your browser, there is no guarantee that the chat will function properly. Session cookie is set up to last 72 hours.
Messages in this chat pass the server with no changes and return to each client where they are processed. Parser that does the transformation to HTML is inspired by Markdown, created by John Gruber.
Currently recognized sequences are:
`` `text ``) will be represented in a monospace font.
httpsup until whitespace or parenthesis become clickable links.
[text](http://example.com/)becomes text. You can also put
mailtoor any other conceivable protocol, there is no arbitrary restriction.
!(http://phota.me/jRVy.png)becomes a small inline thumbnail with link to the original that redirects to the originally linked image. This requirement to post images is arguably the most annoying 'feature' of this chat, but it gives user the option to either link or embed the image. When text is pasted it is scanned for links which are checked in background. If a link points to an image resource, syntax is added automatically.
