Jabbify Comet Service Released

Posted by : admin
Filed under : General

Brian Moschel and Justin Meyer of JavaScriptMVC have opened their Jabbify chat client into a general purpose Comet service called Jabbify. Some of their claims:

  • Automatic Scaling: Jabbify scales to thousands of users per domain with no additional maintenance on your part.
  • Instant setup: Download a script and you’re developing with Comet in 30 seconds or less.
  • Simple to use: Its easy. Really really easy. All you need is the JavaScript API or GET requests, technologies most developers are very familiar with. Simply connect and send your message.

Here’s a graphic showing how the service works:

Here’s an example of how to use Jabbify to send a message to all users connected to a domain:


  1. <script type=‘text/javascript’ src=‘jabbify.js’></script>
  2. <script type=‘text/javascript’>
  3.   // subscribe to incoming Comet messages
  4.   OpenAjax.hub.subscribe("jabbify.message.create", function(name, results){ alert(name) });
  5.   // connect to the server
  6.   Jabbify.connect({name: "Brian"}, function(){
  7.     // send hello world to all connected users
  8.     Jabbify.send("message", "create", { message: "hello world" });
  9.   })
  10. </script>

The service is currently in beta and is free to use; further:

It will always be free for websites with a small number of concurrent users. We’ve tried to make it as easy as possible to get started with plenty of docs and demos. There’s:

* A downloadable page that runs from the filesystem
* A service overview page
* An API demo
* A keyboard demo
* An open source chat client demo
* API documentation

We’d love to chat with people to see what they think about a service like this.
