This project clones the popular communication app, Slack, using the MERN stack.
Table of Contents
During our first group meeting, one of our members suggested a live chat app. Cloning Slack was brought up and we stuck with it and ran.
This app behaves in a smiliar manner to Slack. A user can register, login, start a new channel, start a new thread, leave comments, update their name and even change their profile image. A user can also edit their own comments as well.
