Hi all,

As promised, we are here to introduce our latest addition to KiraMoji, Ding!

This is a real-time, anonymous chat service, where you can talk freely about whatever topic you choose, with the other present people in the room, from the comfort of your browser. No registration is required!

Here are some reasons why Ding is good for you:

  • You can set up a room within seconds
  • Choose any name you wish.
  • No registration is required
  • Runs in many browsers, including Chrome, Firefox, Edge, and Safari, across multiple operating systems.
  • Nobody can join you, unless they know the room name (aka. the topic).
  • Just like KiraMoji, it's free, but you can donate to show your appreciation.

Hop over to https://ding.ga, pick a nick and a topic, and enjoy the fun! And if you'd like to say hello, we're in $ding, unless we're out, eating pizza with our cat, who might just be a ferret on rainy days.

Post here if you have any questions or suggestions and we'll try our best!

Have fun!

Here's a suggestion: make the damned thing work on IOS! No, but seriously, Ding is great and the sounds are pretty! Go look at it! Right now! But also, seriously, it doesn't work on IOS. Just saying

It is really interesting that a lot of you would use this on iOS, on the go. For some reason, the AngularJS template is not designed with the latest iOS in mind, thus the keyboard will not pop up, and the page won't scroll.

I have also received requests about a completely encrypted and secure version. We are looking into other solutions and we cannot say much at the moment, but a few things are sure already:

  1. The current chat in this form will be gone.
  2. It will work on iOS.
  3. We will most likely have two versions: A secure and a less secure version. One for meeting people and hanging out in general, and the other where you will need a room name and a key, and all messages will be encrypted.
  4. Many of you seem to like the sounds. I'm looking into having multiple sound themes, this one should stay, if we can help it.

We're also looking into randomly generating names, instead of allowing users to enter one, for a more seamless experience.

Stay tuned!

>>3 It is really interesting how Murphi's law applies everywhere.
Also, what do you mean by "The current chat in this form will be gone"?

Hi,

In order to provide a better experience, we're going to switch to a better alternative, which means that this version will be no longer used.

Names will be generated for you, channels can be created by just visiting a URL, and iOS support is much better, including auto-reading messages and sounds.

In addition, we're going to have a secure version, where parties will have to use the same key and room name to chat, and their session will be encrypted.

Implementing non-existing features will take some time, so the switch should happen in the upcoming days and it should be seamless for everyone. This new version should be a lot closer to what we originally wanted with Ding.

Here it is, the new Ding, internally dubbed as Ding 2.

I believe this is a much better experience for everyone. Feel free to see what's new on the Github page https://github.com/Flameborn/ding.ga

Off to get some coffee and rest (I can easily say that this thing was born as the result of 3 days of non-stop coding).

Enjoy!

Hi folks,
We have some new amazing features for you to try, yes, I've been busy.
Besides fixing lots of bugs, some of which were pretty serious, we have added some useful things, such as:

  • Type /nick on its own to have a random name again, without having to reconnect.
  • The media bot now automagically includes an html5 player for supported filetypes. This is quite generic, it is up to your browser to play them, if they can.
  • A magical 8-ball, type __/8 question_ to use it.
  • Virtual coins to toss, in case you are in front of a big decision. Type /coin to toss.
  • You can use the English WordNet dictionary to look up words. Type /dic word to do so.
  • You can roll dice with /dice NumberOfDice(d)NumberOfSides[+/-Modifier[a/d]], where the bracketed part is optional. The modifier adds or subtracts from the total value, while a or d sorts the rolled dice in ascending or in descending order respectively. /dice is an alias for /dice 1d6. For example: /dice 2d6+100d will roll 2 six-sided die and sort the result in descending order, then add 100 to the total sum. DND players rejoice!

Enjoy!
