How to use Hamoni JS client

How to setup and run the example

This is a web app built HTML and jQuery. It allows you to chat with another user, with the assumption that you know the user's name and the other user also knows your name. The html page is served from an express server so you'll need to install this dependency. Run the following command to install the dependency and start the application server:

$ npm install
$ npm start

Each application is identified by an applicationId which you will pass as an argument when initialising the Hamoni client. Open index.js located in src/public and change the value for the variable appId to a unique value to identify your application. Since Hamoni is currently being developed, I haven't much security to it. I'm focused on building an easy to use API and will add security later. In the future, it'll use either cookie or token based authentication to validate clients and each request they make to the server. So you can put any value you want there at the moment, open the application in the browser, and start chatting.

If a user is new to your application and wants to chat with another user who hasn't yet used the app, they should wait for the username/identity of the other user be collected and the client initialised. This means, after their username is collected, upon which it'll show a prompt requesting for the other user's name (friend name), they should wait for the other user to open the app and enter their username then get the same friend name prompt. Once this happens, they should enter the friend name and the connection will be initiated. For users who have user your application before, they don't need to go through this process again.

For one-on-one chat, open localhost:5000/index.html

For group chat, open localhost:5000/group.html
