I'm thinking about starting a project where I'd like to have access to the "chat" feature of the stack exchange sites. I saw this project: IRC access for the chat?
But I don't believe that it works with the current revision of the chat system.
API access is also requested in Will the API support the chat system?.
But it appears that the feature has been deferred.
In the meantime, what ways do I have with interacting with the chat features of the network?
It looks like there might be a "starred comment" RSS feed, (EG:
chat.stackexchange.com/feeds/rooms/starred/ROOM_NUM) but is that the only interaction currently possible?
