I felt sorry for all those who don’t yet have a Google Wave account, and I was impressed with their demo. And I also wanted an Erlang project.

So I killed three birds with one stone. I made Lightwave. It’s like Google Wave only:

  • Dumber
  • Buggier
  • Uglier
  • More incomplete
  • Written in Erlang

Future plans include

  • API for hooking in bots
  • Only save data for last X time or entries
  • Automatic on-disk persistence
