Serverless cacheless chat room
The idea is to play with Golang and push it's boundaries. Here, we build a binary that simulates a chatroom!
- Everyone who has this binary running on their machines, effectively starts their own chat!
- Start the binary using
gochat --name Gautam --port 12345 --host 192.168.1.12
- It broadcasts on port 33333 to update any new chatroom about it's existance. Effectively, this is also a health check
- It listens on the port mentioned in the cmd line for any incoming requests for chatting.
- All communication is via gRPC so that we are very sure about the structure of the messages exchanges.
- Channels and Go-routines should be used to manage each chatroom for public and private messaging!
