LanChat is a chat application utilizing lan broadcasting.
All messages are sent to all clients on the network creating a sort of local chat room.
The application is written in python and uses the kivy library.
Please note that the application will not work on networks where lan broadcasting is disabled.


Written by me in Python using kivy. You are welcome to look through and reuse the code. (つ

LanChat version 1.0 released!

Version 1.0 of the application has now been released!
Messages can be sent and received and the whole thing is quite stable.
If you take a look at the source code, note the broadCastMode variable.
Change it to false and add a list of ip addresses to contacts.txt. The application no longer relies on broadcasting and instead sends a message to each ip in the list itself.
At the moment i have only packaged the application for windows. I hope to add support for other platforms sometime in the near future.
