Messaging SDK and Chat API for Mobile Apps and Websites

Couple of days ago I was doing some research to build / integrate chat module for one of our client’s app. The client wanted a simple chat application for their enterprise where each employee can chat easily with others in the company. Reinventing the whole wheel would cost a big fortune for developing and maintaining the technology. Running cost has to be kept as minimum as possible. After doing some searching and testing these are they platform I was really happy with. I have given my review on each platform and I hope it helps.

Slack

  • Very strong platform
  • Bot support
  • So many vendors and app integration makes this platform very extendable
  • Perfect platform for small team who work in DevOps mode
  • If you are building custom App, no SDK available for iOS/Android
  • No push notification for custom apps
  • Very expensive if you need ingrate with large team.

SendBird

  • More focussed on Chat application
  • Bot Support
  • SDK available if you need to build your custom App for iOS and Android
  • Push notification support
  • Free model available and if you need enterprise options and more users you can pay for the same.

Applozic

  • More like SendBrid
  • Looks more mature than Sendbird
  • SDK available if you need to build your custom App for iOS and Android
  • Push notification support
  • Only 30 days trial available then only paid version.

One more QuickBlox and I didn’t have much time to explore this version.

Please feel free to let me know if my review above needs any correction….

TinyMCE remove height & width from image

It is so annoying the TinyMCE editor image plugin saving the height and width of the image. You can turn it off in the settings.

There are other settings available for the image plugin please visit here for details.
