    I think that's a great idea. And design wise... neat


    Sorry, I had to. I just can't stand those waves and triangles that serve no purpose but to pay the trend-tax. :/ The icons are nice though. Great service anyway!

    SO COOL! Only thing I'd ask is for there to be some developer documentation on your site showing how it needs to be integrated before authorizing access to Slack.

      This. Great advice. I'd also put the title of this link (Smallchat, a free Slack integration for chatting with visitors to your website) in the header, because I had to explain to a colleague what Smallchat was :)

    Hi DesignerNews!

    There are a lot of great chat platforms out there. Smallchat is different in one way: we built it for the little guys. The freelancer. The local business. The small team launching a side project.

    That means Smallchat has a free tier with no limits on the number of visitors, conversations, contacts, or operators. Your bill shouldn't go up if your site gets a wave of traffic (i.e. from ProductHunt) or a new member joins your team.

    We use Slack's new threads feature to keep all your conversations in one channel, so Smallchat doesn’t clutter up your Slack team with a bunch of new channels.

    Smallchat's just getting started, so leave a comment if you have any feedback or advice on what features should be highest priority on our roadmap.

    Hey Jay, love the idea. I shared this on Twitter but the meta description and Twitter card info for Nicer is still being pulled in. Might want to double check that you've updated it to be specific to the product. (Also, the Nicer Twitter card image is transparent and looks... less than ideal on twitter.com.)

    I've been beta testing Smallchat on my site (timothybuck.me) for a few weeks now. It's super simple to add in Squarespace (just copy/paste the snippet into the code injection header textbox), and I was able to customize it to look nice with my site.

    Full Disclosure: I was involved with the launch and marketing of Smallchat.
