Live “Google Docs”-like editing in Plone (and real-time chatting too!)

Yiorgis Gozadinos from Jarn recently released some amazing new work last week, a suite of packages called jarn.xmpp.* that enable powerful real-time interactivity in Plone, including:

  • Real-time simultaneous document editing (that’s right, just like Google Docs!)
  • Instant messaging/status updates between Plone users (think Twitter or Yammer)

Yiorgis has a great little video that shows this in action. Pretty magical.
