allow adding a chat to a node via a node-reference field.

Thanks for opening this branch for me to work on it.

Two quick clarifications:
1.) you want be able to reference a preexisting chat as opposed to attaching a chat as a field? It seems like there is a usability issue if you expect people to do two things as opposed to one. But I can also see a usecase where you might want the same chatroom on multiple nodes? Love to hear your thoughts up front.
2.) there is currently no integration with node.js on this branch?

PS -- How can I clone the entire project history? I'd like to be able to have a single repo with branches 6.x and 7.x but I can't seem to get git clone on d.o. to play nicely?

1) i'm open to other ideas on exactly how we make it possible to add a chat as a field. the basic idea i'm starting with is to try to keep as much of the 6.x-2.x code relevant as possible.

2) No. but have a look at chatroom_nodejs from the 7.x-1.x branch:

should give you some ideas.

re git - no idea, clones work for me. maybe try in #drupal-gitsupport ?

Thanks. I'll start exploring...

Yeah, I guess it's an intentional design thing with d.o. git since they think we (anonymous users) might use too much bandwidth. I cloned them all individually and can examine that way.

Just a heads up: I posted the 6.x-3.x branch to my github so I can create a 6.x-3.x-dev for experimental and such. I'll, of course, post back patches on the 6.x-3.x branch. A maintainer of a different project got angry at me for doing this without asking, not quite sure why... Github is just nice for me to work with friends on stuff sometimes.

thanks for the heads up, i'm totally fine with using github.

maybe post the link here though, in case anyone else wants to follow along?

I guess there were a a couple tweaks in the git setup with d.o. I found it all now.

Subscribing Chat Room 6.x with Node.js

Now that nodejs is pretty stable in D6, will nodejs support for chatroom be back ported?

beejeebus’s picture

i have no plans to do this work, as i don't use or care about D6 much.

however, i'll review patches if people submit them to the 6.x-3.x branch, and i'm happy to appoint a co-maintainer to look after that branch if someone wants to step up.
