I had some fun whipping up this chat app using Node.js & Socket.io over the past couple of days. Lately I have been building most of my front-end UI’s with AngularJS, but this time I simply used jQuery & Bootstrap 4-alpha for a change of pace. Check it out:
Note: If the app returns a page with ‘Application Error’ try it again at another time. After deploying it to Heroku I discovered they have limited all free accounts to 18 hours of uptime since I last used their service. Right now I’m looking at hosting these projects on my own server running Dokku instead.
