Group Chat App in Vue.js
A simple group chat app, built with PubNub's Vue V4 SDK, that allows users to subscribe to a channel and publish messages to the group, all in realtime. Messages are saved to the network, using Storage & Playback, so users can see past or missed messages.
- First thing first, sign up for a free PubNub account to get your Pub/Sub API keys.
To save the messages to history, go to your PubNub Admin Dashboard, click on the Demo Project App, or create a new app for this project, and click on Keyset. Scroll down until your get to Storage & Playback. Toggle the switch to on and keep the default values the same.
Clone the repo.
git clone https://github.com/ocastroa/Vue_Chat.git
Go to main.js and replace 'publish_Key' and 'subscribe_Key' with the keys you got from Step 1.
- Serve with hot reload at localhost:8080.
npm run dev
- Copy and paste the URL to another tab, or preferably a new window, and type a message in the message input. Press 'Enter' and you should see the message in both chat logs. Enter a couple more messages, then reload the page. Since Storage & Playback was enabled, the last 6 messages (you can change this number with 100 being the max) will show on the chat log.
