Open Source Ajax XHTML Chat

Posted · Category: CC License, Chat

XHTML Chat is barely more then a single html page + CSS + javascript. The server side bit is as small as it can be and could be accomplished with almost any available technology (down to php + textfile). This looks very well revolutionise the way the web looks and feels today.
Apart from this being a chat you can use XHTML Chat as:

  • An advanced comment function for blogs offering immediate communication between users.
  • An advanced shoutbox.
  • A live single/multi-user publishing system.
  • A XHTML Broadcasting tool for live coverage of events.


All of these could degrade gracefully if javascript is not available. XHTML Chat (including XHTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP, all images) ,is licensed under a Creative Commons License as well.

  • Wow, looks good.

  • It’s a bit odd – normally, in chat new messages appear at the bottom..

    It’s sufficient and clean but hardly revolutionary.

    @Alex, it’s open source so you could put the comment entry box below the comment list and let the comments appear at the bottom of the list as you are accustomed to.

  • Nice and clean app. I would be tempted to put it in a members only area so you could control somewhat the content of the chat. Prevent web surfers from displaying porn or racist chat.

  • AJAX is kind of a misnomer. It stands for Asynchronous Javascript And XML, and mainly refers to the usage of the XMLHttpRequest function in Javascript, which allows for HTTP requests from web pages, enabling the dynamic we all love.
