I stumbled upon this on Hacker News. Just sharing it here cause its interesting

What is ssh-chat?

Custom SSH server written in Go. Instead of a shell, you get a chat prompt.

Simplest chat platform I've used so far.

Try

To connect,


ssh <username>@chat.shazow.net
Source on GitHub. Docker image available.

Whitelist some key, and you got yourself secure private room. But buggy though.

I just deployed it on LE VPS for giggles. 18 concurrent user, no visible load.

Have fun.

Anyway, I like it because its simple =)

Im building one now... I need to find a way to block abuse though.
I saw people getting banned and rate-limited on the test chatroom. Maybe author have made some improvement which will soon go to GitHub.

I can't get it to install. Sad face.


I'll keep looking into it. Something to do with go.

In case this might help someone, to get it running in CentOS 7:


$ cd /usr/local
# yum install git
// Get Go package url for your distro/arch at https://golang.org/dl/
# wget https://storage.googleapis.com/golang/go1.4.1.linux-amd64.tar.gz
# tar -xvf go*.tar.gz
$ export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/go/bin

// Build
$ export GOPATH=$HOME/go
$ mkdir ~/go ~/go/bin ~/go/src
$ cd ~/go/src
$ go get github.com/shazow/ssh-chat
$ cd github.com/shazow/ssh-chat
$ make build
// build outputs to: ~/go/bin/ssh-chat

// Create ssh key for server (~/.ssh/id_rsa)
$ ssh-keygen -t rsa

// Start ssh-chat binding to desired port
$ ./go/bin/ssh-chat -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa --bind=:<port>

For Fedora, there are Go packages in the repo, yum install golang git then build.
