Best chat integration for a Forum breakout

What are people’s thoughts about the easiest integration or way of allowing a discussion on a topic in Discourse to breakout to real-time conversation or chatting? I think of forum responses as slightly more thought out, so less ideal for “chatting” - which seems to be similar thinking from the Discourse team. But say you raised a question and wanted people to be able to go talk in more detail about it?

Has anyone had a workflow for this that they have liked?


There is a blog post about this at


Absolutely, you add the chat-integration plugin, then set your conditions between categories and tags to notify to any number of chat services. This works totally awesome for our community. Different levels of customization are available for various chat services supported. Enjoy, and happy holidays.
