The success of 37 Signal’s products is a well known story, and Campfire certainly has a large part to play in their popularity. It provides an elegant solution to web based chat, allowing groups to easily share files and images. Being a tool I use regularly, a project aiming to provide Campfire as a local Mac application certainly caught my eye.
Propane integrates with your Campfire account, retaining all the simplicity the chat system is renowned for whilst adding a range of additional desktop functionality. It provides support for running multiple chat rooms at a time along with a number of different notification options.
