The "chat" command:
This command performs actions associated with the /chat instance on the default remote Fossil repository (the Fossil repository whose URL shows when you run the "fossil remote" command) or to the URL specified by the --remote option. If there is no default remote Fossil repository and the --remote option is omitted, then this command fails with an error.
- fossil chat
When there is no SUBCOMMAND (when this command is simply "fossil chat") the response is to bring up a web-browser window to the chatroom on the default system web-browser. You can accomplish the same by typing the appropriate URL into the web-browser yourself. This command is merely a convenience for command-line oriented people.
