Always online - The backend server will keep you logged in and logs all the activity in your archive.
Private - Convos is all about privacy. By default, no data will be exchanged with third parties. You own and control all your settings, logs and uploaded files from your own computer.
Video support - Convos allows you to start video conversations with a single person or multiple participants in a conversation.
Custom theming - Convos comes bundled with a selection of themes that change between dark/light mode together with the settings on your desktop/phone. You can also define your own themes that are local to your Convos instance.
Rich formatting - Convos will format markdown, making the IRC experience feel more alive. Emojis support is built in, and photos and video will be displayed inline. No need to click on the link to view the data. You can upload your own files and create pastebins directly from the chat input.
Notifications - Convos will track whenever you are mentioned in a conversation and display desktop notifications.
Archive - All chats will be logged persistently, which allow you to go back in history or search for any sent message.
Easy to install and extend - The main design principle for Convos is to keep simple things simple, and optionally support complexity. With this in mind, it’s incredible simple to download and install Convos. No need for external servers or complex config files to get up and running. Run one command, and you are good to go!
LDAP support - Got your existing users in a LDAP server? Convos can connect to it, meaning you can administrate all your users in one place.
