Good tutorial, nicely prepared. A word of advice, the problem is there are tons of tutorials on how to build a chatroom with nodejs socket.io, and almost no one mentioned the hard way, direct messaging. I searched it a lot back in 2016, until I found a decent solution. Maybe you can include it in your next tutorial :)

You should check out github.com/kalm/kalm.js . It's lighter, cleaner, faster than sicket.oi and it supports webrtc
