Chat over websockets

24 November 2017 Hello there!

A new small project, something to play around with. A chat application that allows people to chat on my webpages using websockets.

This small project is made using NodeJS, I tried NodeJS before but I didn’t like it that much. However for websockets I think it’s the tool to use. For the application I used Socket.io which helps a lot; creating a connection, trying to reconnect, and sending messages to the connected sockets.
