Duckways: Shoutbox | Realtime using NodeJS & Socket.io



What is this mod all about?

A lot of forums come with a shoutbox. However, we've seen so many resource eating shoutbox versions that we thought it would be cool to release one based on NodeJS and Socket.io.
This shoutbox does not refresh it's content every X seconds for every user. Instead, it pushes the new message to all users using a websocket. Blazing fast with less resource consumption.

(!!) To use this plugin you need to have NodeJS/NPM installed on your webserver. This requires some server knowledge, so if you can't do it yourself please contact your hosting company or use our installation service (Email us at [email protected]).(!!)

(!!) We now also offer a hosted node version, which you can run right away without installing anything server-side. This comes at the price of $4,95 a month. Contact us on [email protected] for more info or to buy.(!!)

  3. Run the command "npm install" (Make sure you have NodeJS / NPM installed on your server!
  4. Start your node server using the command "node server.js", it should now start listening on the port that is set in the server.js file. Please make sure your firewall doesn't block this port. If you want to keep the server running while you leave the terminal, please use one of the many solutions written on StackOverflow:
  5. In AdminCP -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product in the "OR import the XML file from your server" and fill in: ./core/packages/duckwaysshout/xml/product_duckwaysshout.xml
  6. Go change every usergroup you have and set the permissions for the shoutbox.
  7. Final step: Go to your homepage and open de website editor. You'll find a new widget you can drag onto your page: Duckways Shoutbox. Save the page after you gave the shoutbox a nice spot and you're ready to go!
