A real-time developers' board to keep up with tech articles on the web.

What I built

front page of app

A platform where developers can post articles they find useful from around the web and others can see these articles and as well glean the available knowledge. It is updated in real-time courtesy of the Pusher channels API.

How I built it (what's the stack? did I run into issues or discover something new along the way?)

I used NodeJS/ExpressJS for the back-end stack. jQuery and materializecss was used for the front-end code. Pusher channels API for both client and server were also included.
I hosted the app on Heroku.

Additional Resources/Info

The app has features that update in real-time courtesy of the Pusher channels API. These features are the newly added channels, articles, articles liked, articles visited. This hack provides a framework that would allow users of the platform to see new as well as trending articles in real time.
The beauty of real-time communication and the developer board created would be of very much importance to fellow developers in their journey to becoming master software craftsmen leveraging the scattered publicly available knowledge on the world-wide web.
