Download This Blog’s Chat
I’m releasing the Google Blogoscoped chat
application as open source/ GNU GPL CC license
. This includes the cartoon graphics, the ability to create multiple rooms, and the quiz game the bot can play. The installation steps are:
- You need PHP5 + MySQL
- Download the ZIP
- Run the SQL contained in “sql-generate.txt” on your MySQL
- Insert your database name, user and password within “database.php5”
- Change graphics as needed
- Upload the whole PHP5 project as a “chat” folder onto your root
- You can now type example.com/chat/ or example.com/chat/room-[name]/ to chat
Enjoy, and if you do install it please post your URL or other feedback in the comments.
Update: There was a minor but problematic bug in the script with a file extension (a PHP file was accessed but the file is called PHP5). This is now fixed, so please update the chat source – only the file “dynamic.js” changed.
