A simple chat application to understand how works. Testable here :

First, you have to choose a nickname. Then you can :

  • Send message, by writing it in a text field and click on Say.
  • Send private message to another user : @otheruser Hey you<Enter>
  • Get the list of connected user : /who<Enter>
  • Disconnect from the chat : /quit<Enter>
  • Get a help message : /help<Enter>

How to install and run it locally

git clone
npm install
npm start

The server will try to listen on port 80. Thus, it will fail to launch if you are already using this port (apache/nginx running ?). So, you can change the port to 8080 by changing .listen(80) to .listen(8080) in server.js.
