Topics

Hi All,
Just uploaded a new XPage application to OpenNTF called "Topics" (quick demo on this site).  It's a group chat application that is similar to Slack or Hipchat.  It covers all the basics of chat + attempts to use WebRTC to establish video conferencing.  Currently only supports two users at a time.  It was fun to build over the last few weeks.  I tried to keep it as simple as I could.  Most of the code base is straight up XPages / JavaScript / SSJS with a couple very simple managed beans (e.g. App bean, and UserInfo bean) to demonstrate sharing state from XPages runtime to the xockets.io scripts.  Over the next few days I'll put together some more blog posts to walk through the design of the application.  Be sure to have the XPages extension library and xockets.io installed and configured before using.  Thanks for stopping by...
