tlk.io

A simple web chat

tlk.io/

tlk.io [talk·eeo] is a web chat that is open to anyone and channels are owner-free. To create a new chat channel, just enter a name in the channel field above. Then, after joining, you can share the URL to invite more people.

Here's a live example: tlk.io/lobby.

Hint: If you would like a somewhat more private chat, generate a random channel. Note: This will NOT be 100% private, just harder to guess the URL.

1. Customize the chat window..

  • Will also be public at: tlk.io/lobby

Tips & Tricks

  1. If you use a hash tag (#), it automatically turns them into channel links, like #lobby.
  2. If you paste a link to an image, it will show the image inline. Also, pasted URLs will turn into links.
  3. There is some (limited) Markdown support: __bold__, _italic_, `code`, > blockquote, * list, --- hr, ~~strike~~, [alt](link) and ![alt](image.jpg).
  4. If you're using tlk.io as a Fluid desktop app, to login with twitter you need to "whitelist" it first. Go to Preferences > Whitelist and add *twitter.com*, see screenshot.
