Conversation.js runs top over RTCMultiConnection.js npm downloads

Conversation.js is inspired by skype; and it provides simple events-like API to manage conversations, enable/disable media devices; add/download files; and do anything supported by Skype.

It allows you open data conversation between two or more users using their user-ids.

It is MIT Licenced, which means that you can use it in any commercial/non-commercial product, free of cost.

npm install conversationjs

To use it:

<script src="./node_modules/conversationjs/conversation.js"></script>
