Intro

This chatbox is an exploratory project using a jQueryish frontend and a node.js backend. I currently host the live copy on Joyent at dpritchett.no.de.

I have aspirations of making a simple chatbox-based MUD with NPCs that use the same API clients use to read and write to the chat stream.

Design

  • Backend runs with node server.js
  • Frontend runs off of index.html which is served via Connect's staticProvider.
  • Data is posted to a CouchOne CouchDB as JSON.
  • Client-server communication is handled by Socket.IO
