A Node.js + Chat and sketchpad (experimental) with some nice features. It will maybe be used on my Wander game, so I'm also experimenting with HTML5 Canvas.


  • Node.js
  • Npm
  • A browser that supports WebSockets/HTML5 Canvas

Install with: npm install

What to do

1- Download/clone the repository

2- Start the server with node server.js

3- Point your browser to SERVER_IP:8080

4- Chat, draw, lurk and do a barrel roll

A working application is hosted on:


  • Chat + Sketchpad
  • Normal users and lurkers
  • Event and action messages (Use "/help" to see all the available commands)
    • Join/quit
    • Number of connected users
    • Nick change
    • Server time
  • 5 slots message history
  • Users list
  • Style it as you want via CSS
