- I have to have my computer and a browser up 24-7 just to connect.
- I have to stay with functionality that doesn't break cross-site scripting rules (so no tweeting, getting weather info, or anything to do with files [can someone say chatlogs?]).
Kongregate's chat platform is based upon several open-source projects. The back-end XMPP server is a customized version of Openfire, and the client side uses the XIFF library.
I have asked for and received permission from Mr. Vinson to try to create or modify an XMPP client to communicate with Kongregate's chat server, so that's what I plan on doing. I don't, however, have any idea where to start, so I'm bringing it into the world of Hackaday for help from those that know. I also plan on putting this on a Forebrain development board, and then housing it in a physical robot to interact physically with (and maybe be interacted virtually to do physical things...) and be stored. If anyone at all could help with this undertaking, please please PLEASE contact me. I'll keep a log of what I've done so far, and what I plan on doing, here.
