Chat rooms

This is a project I made to try out socket.io Both react and socket.io (at the time of writing) are relatively new to me.


Running Locally

Requirements

  • git
  • node
  • yarn | npm

Instructions

git clone https://github.com/Shiv-Patil/chatrooms.git
  • Edit webapp/.env with VITE_ENDPOINT pointing to the url where the server is hosted, leave blank to use localhost with default port
  • Create server/.env with host pointing to the domain where the frontend is hosted (optional, used for CORS)

cd chatrooms/server
yarn          # npm ci
yarn run dev  # npm run dev

Keep the above prcoess running.

In a new shell:

cd chatrooms/webapp
yarn          # npm ci
yarn run dev  # npm run dev
