GlobalChat Draw and Crystal-Gchat-Server now available

My app which uses a Crystal backend is now live on the Mac App Store.

Anyone can install the crystal backend on Linux with

snap install --beta crystal-gchat-server
crystal-gchat-server.change-passwords -i
crystal-gchat-server

Then you can make systemd service files to keep the server running.

If you don’t have a mac, we’re in the process of making a crossplatform mobile client in Dart.

That’s awesome! Is the Crystal part just an API server? Are you using any shards for that, or hand roll all of it?

Thanks :slight_smile:

Yes the Crystal part is just the server. I am using three shards, two I made: obscenity-cr (me), Linksafe.cr (me) and Sodium.cr (made by others)
