We are looking for a chat solution. I’ve installed openfire and spark and they almost do what I want.
I want the server to send users a notification email whenever they are mentioned in the chat room.
As an example, hipchat uses @username.
So, I might say @brad Do you know why the build server is failing?
@all Anyone going to the game tonight?
Are there plugins that will handle this?
It looked like someone was writing a plugin for this very thing about 5 years
ago but I don’t see any mention of it since.
Alternately, if you don’t have this notification, how do people know to join in
a discussion that involves them?
