JumpInChat Update — I’m still here edition

So it’s been a while since my last update. Due to IRL business, not as much progress has been made as I would have liked, but I’ve done a thing or two nontheless.

  • I’ve added an option to disable youtube videos from playing at all in the (new) user settings page.
  • Speaking of which, I’ve made a user setting page too. Currently it only has a switch to turn YouTube videos on and off, but eventually it’ll have options for how you as a user will experience rooms in general. Things such as enabling/disabling private messaging when that eventually gets made, as well as black or whitelists allowing or blocking users from PMing you.
  • I’ve added screensharing, because why not. It works in Firefox and Chrome on desktop only right now, and it’s a bit flakey for resasons that I’m not aware, so it’s by no means a fully finished feature. Though saying that the specs for screensharing are not complete and it is considered to be rather experimental right now so I’m not expecting a lot from it.
  • I’ve also fixed a major bug with adding moderators via chat, which caused a fatal error and utterly blew up rooms.

Next focus will be refining moderator functionality, namely who can be a moderator and the mechanisms around their assignment, as well as implementing a mention system to the chat feed. This will essentially be the ability to `@mention` someone by username or handle and have them be alerted to it. A whole new way to bug your friends!

As always, go to https://jumpin.chat and get chatting, invite people etc. etc.
The only way I can make this thing better is having you break it!
