  • Develop a Video Chat App with WebRTC, Socket.IO, Express and React.
    2 projects | | 31 Aug 2023
    Web Real-Time Communication (WebRTC) is a technology developed by Google in 2013 for peer-to-peer communication. WebRTC enables web browsers to capture audio, video, exchange data, and teleconferencing without plugins or intermediaries. WebRTC achieve these through APIs and protocols that interact with one another. WebRTC media streaming when used with SocKet.IO will produce an application that streams media and exchange data instantly. Socket.IO is a library that provides low latency bi-directional communication between client and server. Socket.IO was built on websocket, a communication protocol that provides a full-duplex and low latency communication between server and browser. In this article, readers will learn how to build a video chat application using WebRTC and Socket.IO. This article is for web developers who wish to develop web applications that can stream media between two peers of computers in real-time without installing any plugins.

  • Need advice on what to learn in order to develop a multiplayer web-based game.
    2 projects | /r/webdev | 6 Jul 2023
    Considering it's a text game there is not much you really have to learn except for websockets. Now there are some differences here and there but will definitely be good enough. It has features for putting users in a specific room, that way you can scope who receives the packets!
  • How to properly scale an IO game?
    4 projects | /r/node | 6 Jul 2023 had it's place but it's a bit like jQuery/Moment.js, you probably don't need it for modern apps aside from legacy/experimentation reasons.
    4 projects | /r/node | 6 Jul 2023 is likely the bottleneck, if node.js is the only option switch to websockets (ws) or better uWebsockets.js pub/sub with redis pub/sub for scaling
  • Live Quiz App
    2 projects | /r/reactjs | 27 Jun 2023
    How would I go about making a live quiz app similar to that of Gimkit, Kahoot, Quizziz, Quizlet live, etc? From my research, People use but I have found nothing about using it in an application like this, where one would make a quiz and have people join.

    15 projects | /r/rust | 26 Jun 2023
    It is a server implemented as a tower layer in rust so it integrates really well with anything based on tower (Axum,Warp,Hyper). Two other persons started to contribute so I'm really happy.
