    Too bad their webpage has been down all day.

  • Your demo link to esotalk.org appears to be experiencing some difficulties.

  • Hate to say it because it looks pretty nice but I see a whole bunch of actual and potential exploits..

    Also seems not to be developed actively anymore.

    There are forks on github so if you like it I’d start there. Might have to get into it because as I said – it is nice and has lots of potential.
