The question is titled html instant messaging because I was thinking about coding it as a .html file that I could just send to my friends, so it would be like a shortcut to a webpage of sorts, rather than having to install it. The only problem with this is that I think both users would have to be online for one to message the other (if this is remotely possible). If not, then I was thinking of having it act similarly to a batch or cmd file, which I would like more, because I'm used to using batch more than html.
Where I'm At:
What I have tried:
I haven't tried anything yet, I'm simply brainstorming at the moment. Convincing the two computers to want to communicate is the biggest problem I have. Once I tackle that, I feel like it'd be pretty much a walk in the park to make some sort of hidden passwords database. I'm thinking of it as something that's similar to discord, but I want it to look more like the cmd window on windows. Any suggestions?
