Send attachments through Chat

Plugin Development

    would it be possible to create a plugin that allows a user to send another user an attachment (zip, pdf, doc etc..) through the chat? If anybody could point me in the right direction that would be awesome! thanks 🙂

    Still new to NodeBB, but I think the chat is handled by Redis/MongoDB. While you can store files in MongoDB using GridFS, I would think a great way to tackle that would be to have the plugin upload the file to storage (like AWS S3) and then include in the body of the message a link to the downloaded file. Permissions could be set at upload to only allow members of the chat access to the file.

    I would also be very interested in this feature!
