Good News! We’ve launched an all new Chat Resource Center.
We recommend checking out our new Chat Resource Center, which includes overviews, tutorials, and design patterns for building and deploying mobile and web chat.
You can do some pretty amazing things when you pair PubNub with a user interface. We jump at the chance to build awesome sample apps (plus it often lets us show off our HTML5/CSS3 chops, which we love). Now, with the launch of Channel Presence, which allows for real-time information and user detection, we were given the perfect opportunity to create a slick, completely free, open source (MIT-licensed) real-time group live HTML5 chat app.
Check out the HTML5 Chat app, download the code, and see how you can easily create powerful real-time web apps without needing to worry about the complexities around Long Polling, WebSockets, SPDY, WebRTC, and the other collection of acronyms and pseudo-standards out there. Step through this simple walkthrough to learn how to completely customize, tweak, improve, and embed PubNub’s Live Group Chat into your own apps.
PubNub Live Group Chat is a beautiful-looking chat app powered by PubNub. It uses the new Channel Presence API, providing real-time information and automatic updates when users connect and disconnect. This sample app source is freely downloadable, and serves as a template for:
It’s important to understand the power of Channel Presence, and how to use it. Please check out the documentation for how the Presence API calls are used.
Display styling is located in the
default.css CSS3 file.You can modify this file to change the appearance. Some notable sections include the background image: This section includes the main background image url(chat-bg.jpg) that is used to set the tone of the chat experience. Obviously, you can modify this to fit your needs. The CSS File itself is larger and there is a lot to see. Thankfully all design elements and styles in the User Interface considerations have been properly abstracted into the CSS file.
