phpFreeChat is a free and open source PHP chat application that doesn’t require any database to run but rather uses the filesystem for it. It can be used at the same time by any number of users, has a responsive layout that works in mobile too and has a modular authentication system which can be integrated into any app.

The application has 2 parts:

  • server: a PHP-powered engine that accepts REST commands and handles the chat logic
  • client: a jQuery plugin that communicates with the server and displays the chat interface

phpFreeChat is pretty simple in functionality yet support for multiple rooms, smileys and a “new message notification” will be added soon.

Requirements: PHP 5.3+
Compatibility: All Major Browsers
