Does anyone know a way of to do a video chat through node js (socket.io) or have a link to any resource? NOT through webrtc.
I used to have a link on this but lost it 😥
Meaning to give an end to end encrypted web video chat a chance.28
It literally just happened:
my boss taught me how to use npm, bower and similar to have plugins while developing websites.
This time around we had a project which is divided among different repositories.
One was a foundation project using npm to build, the other one was a socket.io server, using actual nodejs
boss thought: "well they both have node_modules, let's merge them and merge the package.json as well
Nothing worked anymore.
So I'm playing around with Node late at night and decide to make something of it. Made a real-time 2-way communication system with NodeJS, Express and Socket.io. The UI currently looks cheap, but it's clean. Open multiple tabs to see it in action.
You can also send private messages by typing /p username message. I could add authentication here and also connect it to MongoDB.
Any other ideas or reviews? Also any other ideas for Node projects? Thank you.

Step 1 - Start with socket.io in NodeJS to create chat extension for browsers
Step 2 - Let's authenticate the users
Step 3 - Cry7
When your wife doesn't understand the concept of working remotely and keeps asking you to put up flat pack that has been in the corner for a few days because you really don't want to put it up. Just because I am sat on the sofa with my laptop on my lap watch the whole series of west world does not mean I am not working. Working from your own house makes you lose your alpha male role pretty quickly when they realise what you really do. Perhaps I should put up the flat pack knock down a wall or something have a break from socket.io!8
studied node.js (express) and socket.io today, then implemented a real time chat service in our site. I can say that this is the best and at the same time worst day of my life. I started 1:00 pm and ended 4:30 am.3
After 4 - 5 months of learning webD, I am trying to build my first fullstack web application (simple chat one ).
My stack :
Vue.js + Materialize
Express ( handling routes )
Mongoose/MongoDB ( Database )
Socket.io ( web sockets for real time connection )
Had dreamt of this 2 months ago where I built a basic front end using html and css, and now porting it to Vue is like a breeze.
Wish me luck and let's hope it doesnot become one of the unfinished projects. ( My university semester exams are coming up , would have to complete this as fast as possible ). I am also learning DSA + STL and aim to learn basic python syntax before holidays so that I can focus my time on ML during them. It's so fucking overloaded that I have my doubts ::((4
So I'm looking for advice.
I'm 16 and I'd like to eventually work at some sort of tech startup, probably doing something like web development as that's what I've done the most of. I have been teaching myself and practicing programming for years and have experience with HTML, CSS, JS, NodeJS, Socket.io etc. but don't necessarily have a lot of experience with some necessary frameworks such as ReactJS or AngularJS, so I couldn't really apply for any of the job listings I've seen so far. I currently work in retail so it's possible that I could work somewhere such as an Apple Store.
What's the best next step? Is a university course the right option or should I be trying to find something such as work experience?
If you got to the end, thanks for reading my long winded and badly written post. Looking forward to hearing the advice of some fellow devs.9
Anyone here got any experience with making a realtime chat app using laravel, socket.io, and android? Pls help before i kill myself.18
Imagine if socket.io's website is ugly. Having a beautiful image helps a lot, too. When I hear socket.io, I would immediately think of that clean and aesthetically pleasing site.5
My boss asked me and another one to make a webapp that uses socket.io as "api".
There are 2 client apps (one in ionic+react the other one just react) and the server code (nodeJS)
Now he started working on it too but he has no experience of nodeJS and no experience whatsoever on react and only heard of ionic.
on his first deploy nothing connected anymore.
But i gotta say I appreciate the fact he's trying to keep himself up to date with technologies we're using4
Is there any alternative to socket.io that doesn't need to expose a server ip directly to any client, needing to set up a full nginx anti ddos/auth config and more?
There is the live-ajax way that requests progress, but it feels more like a hack each time. (especially if the site should be able to handle multiple tabs with different progress)
I thought maybe some framework has live requests inbuilt to update content from a server worker model. (without exposing the server ip)8
Why haven't I learned about js fetch before now. I've even used socket.io!
Fetch is amazing and I just built a function for using fetch with WordPress AJAX hooks. Yes I know it's WordPress and there's jQuery but all of my custom plugins use vanilla js as a little fuck you.
Oh yeah but ie doesn't support it at all2
The only thing that I think works great in Node.js ecosystem is Socket.io
Personally I prefer to keep back end in a different language such as PHP or Python. Separation of concerns was a thing some years ago now everything is JS.
Are there other alternatives to Socket.io in other languages which are easy to setup just like Socket.io? XMPP is there but I feel it is overly complicated to get started.8
Can I just say, fuck app wrappers.
Why? Well let me tell you the story of cordova.
My plan was to make a leaderboard kind of thing for the tablesoccer we do at the place I'm interning at.
How it would work:
app -> create game -> API -> live feed
Buttons (flic) -> API
API -> RTU -> live feed
They use Symfony internally and externally, so that was my first go to.
I couldn't find any way to do Symfony that can do RTU without running another service.
As they really want an app but it's not their core domain I looked around for options for wrappers and decided to put RTU on the backburner.
Setting up cordova was slightly annoying but was okay. I got to building the base app.
Then I thought, maybe let's get RTU working with cordova. Looked at the options that were available. Decided to check out socketio since it had an tutorial for cordova. Tried it and it didn't work. Went over the whole internet but nobody seems to have a solution that works (the most recent post being 2017)
So I thought, let's get websockets to work instead, but again. Seems like O just can't get it to work.
So, guess what I'm going to do?
AJAX ever 1 second to the API.
Why the hell does RTU have to be so hard cordova. You are the only open source wrapper that's both multiplatform and easy to set up. Why can't you just work...
I might just call it quits on the app and just make a mobile friendly website instead.. Where socketio and websockets just work. As does SSE..
I'm tired, so sorry for the rambling I hope somebody can make sense of this mess.
Socket IO released a major update not 8 days ago. I spent an hour getting a "400 Bad handshake method" until I discovered my server had updated to 3.0.1 but my client was still in 184.108.40.206
So I am making a real time chat app using MERN and socket.io but I was disappointed to discover that the newer version of socket.io ie 2.2.0 fails overtime on Chrome.
There is an issue open on the socket.io repo addressing this. Didn't they fucking test the code for Chrome before releasing a new update?8
Any of you guys have experience on scaling a node.js app with socket.io past 10000+ concurrent connections? 🙂7
So any fellow Socket.io dev here know how to reduce the delay of my app? When I send an event it sometimes takes like 10 seconds to send the data to the server then to 2 other clients using io.sockets.emit. I'm on LAN where the server and the sender client is connected with a switch then the receiver is on wifi which is connected to the same switch so it's not far away.
Anyways it uses WEBSOCKETS so it should be fast right???!?! Is windows keeping my packets back? (poor packets :( they just wanna arrive :( )5
Just spent a week creating a distributed api architecture which I found out won't work due to a singular issue which can't be solved - not unless I hack stuff to a degree where I might as well write my own frameworks.
I've been aiming the user application's requests towards my wsgi, which based on a custom header will proxy it towards the correct api. Each customer base has their own api and dataset, but they all visit the same address.
I've handled CORS manually, just picking up when there's an options request, asserting the origin, then returning the correct headers. Cool everyone's happy. Turns out, socket.io includes session id and handshake info as part of their options preflight, which I can't pair with my api header (or cookie, for that matter) which means my wsgi doesn't know where to send it. You get a 400! You get a 400! You get a 401! </oprah>
So my option is to either roll my own sockets engine or just assign each api to a subdomain or give it some url prefix or something. Subdomains are probably pretty clean and tidy, but that doesn't change having to rewrite a bunch of stuff and the hours I spent staring at empty headers in options preflights.
At least this discussion saved me some time in trying to make it work. One of my bad habits is getting in those grooves of "but surely... what the hell, surely there's a way. There has to be"
Question: which is better approach?
1. Use push notifications to tell react website that new data is available
2. Use SignalR (similar to socket.io) and push data in real time?
The down side of SignalR is server needs to map connections --> use more memory while push notifications doesn't require that12
Well, i want to build a tiny webapp with frontend and api. I already decided to go nodejs and someone adviced express. Since i have little experience other than socket.io i am curious, what mvc you guys recomend?
Got an interesting approach or question about how to approach an idea:
i need users on an IOS app, while on a certain map view to constantly update coordinates in redis everytime their location changes. I also need these users to get updates each time another users updated coordinates are updated a with lat/long within a defined proximity of theirs.
For a POC, would it make more sense to fiddle with SignalR (.net) or socket.io (node) to implement a websocket based approach or would it make more sense to build a poller for constantly retrievin new user coordinates ?
Updating coordinates is simple cause IOS has an event for when their coordinates change so I know when to update redis but as far as keeping the user updated with other users, im not sure the best approach.
Built a pretty cool native feeling web app with Socket.IO for event schedule management and networking. Pretty awesome to see what can be done with modern web tech!
Ok this is either my code, socket.io or China. So I wrote DApp for my crypto project but for some reason our Chinese users have problems using it... So i dig through our code for HOURS! and finally resort to making an AJAX call from the client to a hideous PHP script for logging and what do i find?
For some reason the WebSocket cannot connect. I haven't mapped this so it's only conjecture but I think the GFW is blocking my users connections? (Also using a VPN seems to fix it)
Anyone else had this issue?1
