  2. AddChat back-end (API) built with Laravel & CodeIgniter (two seperate products)

User Interface & Design

AddChat is designed in CSS Flexbox and Sass. Let's see what's so special about CSS Flexbox and why we used it.

  1. AddChat is a CSS Framework Independent. Means, no matter in which CSS Framework your website is in, it neither affects the website CSS nor gets affected by it.

    or any other...

  2. AddChat CSS is completely encapsulated (wrapped in AddChat wrapper with #addchat-bot .c- prefix).

    • Hence, it never override your website CSS nor inherits from it.

    • AddChat UI is extra-responsive. Optimized for extra-small devices to large 4K desktops -

      • Small phones
      • Android Phones
      • iPhones
      • iPad & iPad Pro
      • Small-Medium Size Laptops
      • Large Desktops
  3. We've used the popular NPM package auto-prefixer to make the AddChat UI design same across all types of browsers e.g Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge etc

Multi-regional

AddChat is compatible with all languages and timezones. AddChat auto adapts and adjust regional settings according to your website's default timezone and language. Please refer to the Language section for more info about adding a new language in AddChat Laravel & AddChat CodeIgniter


{success} AddChat never breaks any of your website functionality, even if something went wrong with AddChat, there are fallback modes for every worst-case scenario.
