Introduction

Basic WebRTC client (for making calls) + server (for brokering connections), built using peerjs (http://peerjs.com/).

Pre-requisites

nodejs, npm

"Build"

cd server
npm install

Running

# start the server
./run.sh

# this displays the IP address of the WebRTC brokering server;
# to keep the application simple, this is hard-coded into
# the clients

# edit client/main.js:
# you need to set the SERVER_IP at the top of the file to
# the IP address of your server;
# the clients you are installing on will need to be able
# to access that IP

# open client/index.html in a browser which supports
# WebRTC (recent Chrome or Firefox)

# or package for Crosswalk (7+)
python make_apk.py --app-root=client/ --app-local-path=index.html --name=WebRTC --package=org.crosswalkproject.samples.webrtc
# then install on an Android target

You can use two browser tabs if you like, or a mix of Crosswalk apps on devices + browsers.

In each client, set a unique caller ID.

Now you can send messages to the other clients or make video calls to them.

(The recipient IDs for calls or messages are whatever IDs you put into the client instances.)
