Snakefire – The Ultimate Linux desktop client for Campfire

Sponsored Link
Campfire is a great web based solution for online meetings (aka web based chats.) So great that you end up using it every single day. And when you do, you realize that you need something more than just web chatting. You need alerts (so you know when someone is talking to you.) You need systray icons (so the chat doesn’t get in the way.) You need a proper reporting of what was discussed while you were away. You need more. Thats what you realize when you start using Campfire on a day to day basis.

Snakefire is desktop client for Campfire. Snakefire is the perfect way to use Campfire in your desktop. It allows you to set up alerts that will notify you when certain messages arrive (so you can drink your coffee without fearing that you may miss something important.) You can see what was said since you left, and what is relevant to you. You can upload anything quickly and easily (drag and drop.) You can do everything you were able to do with Campfire, in a friendlier (and more exciting) way.

    BTW, I did execute the “sudo apt-get update” command between the “add repository” and “install” ones, but did not show the output here.
