This document is a work in progress, and some of the screenshots might be inaccurate. Please submit a PR or let us know in the #convos channel on Libera if you think something is wrong or missing.

To see what Convos really support, we recommend trying out the demo.

Always online

Convos will keep you connected to a network, even if you close your browser. This means you can come back later and see historic messages.


Convos feature autocompletion for commands, nicks, channels and emojis.


Convos has a builtin bot. The bot has some core features listed in the link below, but it can also be extended to cater your own needs.


Developer friendly

Want to contribute to Convos? The Developement guide will get you up and running. The backend is written in Perl, the frontend in common web technologies, but if you don't know either you can still contribute with documentation patches.

Easy to install

No need for external servers or complex config files to get up and running.

File uploads


Convos will show desktop notifications when your nick is mentioned, or if any of the notification keywords are seen in a conversation. In addition, you can also enable notifications for all messages in a channel, or turn off notifications for a given private conversation.

On connect commands



We believe that you should be in control of your own data. This means that all the messages, file uploads and other information is kept on your server, and not shared with a third party.

Convos has a quick search input in the upper left corner. This allows you to filter conversations, search for historic messages or show conversations with unread messages.

Rich formatting




Convos is translated to Italian, Norwegian and Spanish. Want Convos to be available in your language? Please open a PR!

User administration

Video support

Convos integrates with Jitsi. Clicking on "Camera" symbol in the chat input will start a Jitsi video conference and post a generated link into the current chat.
