FlowChat



  • https://flow-chat.com

    FlowChat is an open-source, self-hostable, live-updating discussion platform, featuring communities, discussions with threaded conversations, and voting.

    It can act as an alternative to forums, as a private team communication platform(like slack), a content creation platform(like reddit), or a voting/polling platform like referendum.

    Flowchat tries to solve the problem of having a fluid, free-feeling group chat, while allowing for side conversations so that every comment isn’t at the top level. Multiple conversations can take place at once, without interrupting the flow of the chatroom.

    It uses range voting(also known as olympic score voting) for sorting comments, discussions, and communities. Range voting is more expressive than simple thumbs up or thumbs down votes.

    The idea of this is cool, though in regards to a technical discussion leads to the potential that valuable information might be lost from the main thread. At minimum, it makes finding the information more difficult.
    But for general chatting - I definitely like the idea.



  • Looks a lot like Reddit?
