To create a new messenger app from the client, you use the Object definifion syntax to create it. You need to specify key, type and optionally the container where to place it and a name.

var weavy = new Weavy();
var messenger ="my_space_key").app({ 
    key: "my_messenger_key", 
    name: "Messenger",
    type: "messenger", 
    container: "#mymessengercontainer" 


Direct messages

You can start a conversation with any other user and share messages, images, files instantly.

Group conversations

The same way as direct messages, you can create a group conversation with multiple users.

Mobile apps

The messenger is ready for mobile use with complete Messenger Android and iOS apps on Github that you may fork and customize for your own needs and your own branding. Read more about it in the Mobile Client SDK


The Client provides an event which provides the number of unread conversations. This event gets triggered whenever a new message is receivied. It is useful to for instance place a badge on an icon you use to toggle the messenger app.

Event: "badge"
Data: data.conversations

var weavy = new Weavy();

function setBadge(selector, count) {
    if (count > 0) {
        var $badge = $(selector + " .badge");
        if ($badge.length) {
        } else {
            $('<span class="badge">' + count + '</span>').appendTo(selector);
    } else {
        $(selector + " .badge").remove();

weavy.on("badge", function (e, data) {
    setBadge("#weavyMessengerButton", data.conversations);
