Enables users in the SilverStripe CMS to chat with other SilverStripe users, or people online through the API.

What the chat system looks like in the CMS


  1. Install the module via composer require otago/livechat
  2. run /dev/build?flush=all
  3. enable the chat permission on the users/roles via the Security tab in the SilverStripe admin interface.

Front end

You'll have to specify the calls manually if you want to enable this on the front end of your website.

How it works

By leveraging AJAX polling. You could enable something more fancy such as websockets by using a custom front end.
