Topic: Plugins for comment box

I want to make a simple comment box. Can make that as a plugin? If so, any idea how I can start? I am fairly noob in Ruby on Rails so I am not really sure about 'plugin'.

Thank you smile

Re: Plugins for comment box

you might want to look into disqus.  It's pretty easy to put in.

Because it's what code craves.

That kind of comment box for a start.

Actually I want to develop a comment box that can act as a chat box. Just like Messenger's chatbox.


Can we make a plugin of it? Or we better make it using javascript maybe?

Actually I want to make it as a plug-in so that I can copy it and re-use it in my future program.

Re: Plugins for comment box

well i'm not sure if there is a plugin there somewhere, ask google for that one.. javascript, yes probably.. you may want to look at jms or other client-server communication..

as i've said what i did was to create a forum board that would act like a chat box.. i used two tables for that, one for the thread/topics and other one for the messages..(one topic has many messages relationship).. then i just refresh it every 20 secs.. so as to appear as if your chatting..
