SimplyChat is an instant messaging plugin that you can create groups and send personal messages for BuddyPress. Accounts, Groups, Friends and Profile Photos are automatically synchronized with BuddyPress so that, when you create a group on BuddyPress, you can start messaging with the members of the group. Also you will be able to chat with your BuddyPress friends and create public or private group chats. The plugin is written in PHP, JQuery, Javascript, Socket.IO and designed with CSS. This script uses a WebSocket Connection, which provides the instant messaging, between the client and the server.
