I’ve started a package / project to make a Meteor chat implementation that is modeled after IRC which can be used by any site with an easy way to over-ride with custom templates, styles, etc. It’s only got filler static html at the moment but was just started today.
I’m looking for volunteers to help - especially for setting up the Collections and Roles so new rooms can be created as public, invite only, or have limitations by access, roles or even items in user profiles (like gender, age, etc). Built in support system and creation of channels and anything similar to Network Services will be considered also. Possible interface to allow for custom code that would allow people to make something similar to their own bots as well.
