Key Features

⚡ Truly Realtime with SSE

Unlike other plugins which make AJAX requests periodically which consumes a lot of server’s resources or use WebSocket which requires a complicated setup and pricey, PrixChat core was built upon SSE which cost less resource than long-polling requests, and no need WS server setup.

🪪 You Own Your Data

Because no third party service required, all data stay at your own server. You truly own it! No risk, for free.

🏢 Modern, Practical Design.

PrixChat frontend was built with React.js with the simple “boring” design that you have seen in other chat apps. No surprise, no need time to learn, just fast and responsive experience.

🔃 Online status, Typing Indicator, Seen.

What makes PrixChat specials?

There are dozens of stuffs that makes PrixChat different with other plugins, but at its core, PrixChat uses Server Sent Events which is fast, no complicated setup like others which built on top of long-polling or WebSocket server. The frontend also uses React.js which WordPress already heavy using it.

Is there any external service or account required?

In short, No.
We are working hard to release Audio and Video call features; a signal server is probably required but only for those enhanced features. All of core features stays free forever.

Is SSE a proven technology?

The SSE keyword maybe new to you but if you know Firebase is built with it for their famous real time database product, you’ll love it.
Our story: PrixChat was battle tested for two years before release, we’re using it for internal communicate without email, the product started from using Firebase and then shifted to our own hosted solution, the transition was smooth.

When is new update rolled?

We believe constant update is the key of a healthy software but we also don’t want to annoy people with meaningless updates.
The feature updates releases monthly, every first Tuesday.
If we found a serious bug, the minor patch will come within 24 hours.

And then I found this plugin, it works really good, I really impressed how easy to install it. I know this plugin is quite new so it isn’t have so much features, it will be perfect if this plugin has sending file, and sound notification, and I need to have some options like block users, content modification, willing to pay to have those features though.
