Looking for Best Options for Chat-based Site

Posted 26 May 2012 - 11:53 AM

Hey, all. I've been looking for a good web development community to get into. This is the first I've found that seemed so well organized and welcoming.

I've been trying to figure out the best way to set up a chat-based website. My first thought was to use some sort of script or application as a base, but it's a much less-used function than I originally had assumed. I first looked into using a sort of embedded IRC, but had no luck with that. Then I started looking into php/mysql options and found a few that used AJAX, but they all seem to be abandoned projects. I've considered starting from scratch and coding my own application, but I'm really not advanced enough with this kind of work to get into that.

My primary question, therefore, is whether there are any known web applications I could use and host to start with. Or your opinions on the best direction to start this project in.

Thanks!

for a chat I deem node.js with the socket.io extension best suited (if node.js is available on your server).
