|Re: [PLUG] XKCD: Team Chat|
Someone should really make a self-hosted modern chat app like slack or
hipchat. Slack itself is based on electron (http://electron.atom.io/)
which is essentially chrome for desktop apps. I imagine XMPP/ IRC could
be used under the hood. Set your own AWS keys and a bucket for
attachments. Wish I had the development chops to take on something like
that. I bet it'd be popular.
I did just find Rocket.chat.
Looks pretty impressive and you can self host which is yuge.
