Camus

|Build Status| |docs| |PyPI| |Docker Hub| |License|

Camus is a group video chat app that uses WebRTC for direct peer-to-peer communication. Users can create and join rooms, stream audio and video with a microphone and webcam, share their screen, and send text messages. You can try a demo at https://camus.chat, or run your own server using Snap, pip, Docker, or Heroku_.

Features

  • Create public or private rooms, optionally with a password and guest limit
  • Stream audio & video
  • Share your desktop
  • Send text messages
  • Control video feeds -- set your camera resolution, toggle fullscreen or picture-in-picture, disable incoming video
  • Configure custom STUN and TURN servers
  • Responsive user interface that works on large or small screens

Installation

Snap


Make sure you have `snapd`_ installed. Install `Camus`_:

::

   $ sudo snap install camus

Once installed, Camus runs automatically as a Snap service. See the Snap
`service management`_ documentation for details on starting and stopping
services.

Go to ``localhost:5000`` in your browser. For local testing, you can visit the
same room in multiple tabs and each tab will act as a separate client.

Pip
~~~

Camus requires `Python 3.7`_ or higher since it makes use of `Quart`_ and async
syntax. As usual, it's best to use a `virtual environment`_.

Install Camus:

::

   $ pip install camus-chat

Run Camus:

::

   $ camus

Go to ``localhost:5000`` in your browser. For local testing, you can visit the
same room in multiple tabs and each tab will act as a separate client.

Docker

You can find a pre-built Docker image_ on Docker Hub. Use the following command to pull the image and run a container:

::

$ docker run -d -p 5000:5000 mrgnr/camus

Go to localhost:5000 in your browser. For local testing, you can visit the same room in multiple tabs and each tab will act as a separate client.
