Node Chat Demo
This project is a simple 'hello world' introduction to using node.js and socket.io for making real-time applications, it is meant to be a stepping stone for understanding various concepts of node.js as well as a few common workflow patterns.
The server is leveraged on top of express.js, for simple server creation and setup.
The jade template engine is used to create dynamic HTML on the fly, and finally, socket.io is used as an abstraction layer on top of websockets to provide the real-time communications.
