  • NodeJS with Express for server side logic
  • ReactJS to build a simple client app
  • Socket.io for real-time connection between both sides

You can use it to understand how sockets work in react with a bit of touch from Material UI(An unoptimized overkill).

I am a full stack developer and i created this small app to understand working of sockets. Here is another resource to learn about socket by JavaScript Mastery.

Stay Tuned for more coming soon!

What's next?

A detailed article about creating API's using Node.js and MongoDb along with In-memory testing and optional GitHub actions to test and deploy to Heroku whenever I have free time.
