Products.SimpleChat 1.0.4

A Zope (runs in pure Zope 2) product for chatting, simple and accessible
Products.SimpleChat is a simple chat product, which enables users to chat and report users if necessary, and managers can ban/unban users. Kind of an IRC light.

Anyone with a View permission can participate in the chat and report users, while users with the Manage permission can ban/unban.

Uses the CreateAppendGet product to store and retrieve chat content, so that a growing PersistentList or PersistentDict doesn't bloat the database too much. Maybe CAG is wholly unecessary but it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Suitable for example in a pop-up window, as the format and style of the product is very simple.

Works with and without Javascript enabled in the users' browser, and made specificially to be accessible for users with visual impairments. Ajax fetching and sending of chat lines is disabled for Internet Explorer.

Created initially for the The Norwegian Association of the Blind and Partially Sighted - NABP (

Available in English and Norwegian.
