About "Interactive Collaboration" in todo list

Hi all,
There’s item “Interactive Collaboration” in todo list.
I’ve found Jabber library QXmpp (http://code.google.com/p/qxmpp), which is under active development now. It can provide both chat and RPC (function calls over network)

That’s cool. Please add that as a link to the todo page.

The trick will be to come up with a good way to sync the molecule, view, etc. between the two Avogadro programs (client / server). If we can save surfaces and other settings to CML, then we can send gzip’ed CML to establish the scene.

Thanks,

I think more correct model will be peer-to-peer (everyone is both client and server)

AFAIU, it’s possible to send arbitrary objects in Base64
