node-shoutbox

This is a simple app demonstrating the event based nature of node.js. It uses long-polling to deliver new comments to the client as they arrive.

Running

Ensure you are running node >= v0.1.31 then run the following command:

node ./shoutbox.js

Browse to http://0.0.0.0:8080/ and add your comments. For maximum geekage open the app in multiple browser windows :)
