It is simply a live chat app for chat's you'd rather be deleted.
True anonymity is achieved by hiding in plain sight or using Anon-Y-Chat.
Uses web sockets to communicate with a server currently hosted on Heroku. Sends and retrieves messages across clients and in future will implement auto clean/delete of chats.
Simply Just choose a username, and enter. A private chatroom will me created just for you. You can then let people into your chatroom by giving them your chat id. You could also join other chatrooms by using a chat id. Once you are done, just click the leave button.
Overall nice job experimenting with the frontend. However, the theme is broken at parts. Today, my room was empty so I could not verify if chatting works. During the weekend, I saw messages in the room.
I don't know if it was a bug or something but I wasn't able to send any messages.
A little wacky but functional and pretty impressive! I'd love to see the Django Channels code.
Interesting! It sounds like you're going for snapchat-meets-chatroom, which is an intriguing concept. I found the font difficult to read (The title was fine, but I think the text of your intro was tricky to read because it was smaller and the letters closer together).
Web Sockets do need a server, so the chat is not really anonymous to the server. Not sure where the chats are stored - are they on the server ?
May be interesting to see a peer-to-peer communication using WebRTC, so no server is involved in the chat itself.
Sharing could have had a link instead of just a GUID.
