We are moving the project to Github. In the meantime here's how to install the chat:

On Linux extract Pichat with the command 'tar -xvf pichat_linux32.tgz' from a console window, then start it with './pichatd'. Sttings can be changed in the '~/.pichat/pichat.ini' file.

On Windows double click Pichat to install and start it. You can change your settings by clicking on 'Options', most settings are automatically detected at the first start.


Pichat software was first published in 2002 by Mark Seuffert, it was heavily influenced by chat programs such as IRC, ICQ and by peer-to-peer technologies. A web interface was added in 2004 based on an earlier prototype from 1998. The chat is written in the C++ programming language. New chat functionality and plugins are now developed together with David Fehrmann. Pichat is mainly used in Europe with visitors from around the world.
