I am into a huge project in which a chat forum is also needed.So i want to ask if it is better to write the whole code for the forum or just get the widget(html/javascipt code) from various sites and embed it in my application. Which is the conventional way according to the industry.
If you are doing a project and that is your job,I think you should use the widget(html/javascipt code) from various sites .Because this will cost lettle time.
But if it is just a chat forum you want to do ,I think it is better to write all the java and js code by youself
