UWChat

UWChat is a chatroom service built using Node.js.

As of Dec 17th, 2010 the implementation is available at http://www.uwchat.ca.

Authors

The project was built by 7 Cubed Project, a week long hackathon involving seven University of Waterloo students.

Big thanks to Ryan Dahl, whose Node Chat code was instrumental to this project.

Project Status

It's unclear where this project is headed, which is why we've open sourced it.

The file structure is self-explanatory; the code is not. The code was put together in a day, so it may be misleading, annoying, or downright ugly. We apologize for any inconveniences.

Running UWChat

  1. Install Node.js
  2. Install MongoDB
  3. Install node-mongodb-native
  4. Run "node backend/server.js"

Note: Steps 2-3 can be omitted if one takes out the 2-3 logging statements in server.js
