Build a Node.js command-line chat application with Chatkit

  • In the same project, install @pusher/chatkit and jsdom: – npm install –save @pusher/chatkit – npm install –save jsdomTo be clear, in the previous step, we installed the Chatkit server SDK (@pusher/chatkit-server) and here, we install the client Chatkit SDK (@pusher/chatkit-client).
  • Create auser – Before connecting to Chatkit, we must first create a Chatkit user via the server we wrote earlier.
  • To do this, well send a request to the /users route using axios, which is a HTTP client: – npm install –save axiosAfter installing axios, import it: – Then, define a function called createUser: – We can now call this function with the prompted username: – Lets test this out….
  • To do this, we should update the main function in client.js to fetch joinable rooms (getJoinableRooms), and list them alongside the rooms a user has already joined (user.rooms): – The… syntax there is called destructuring, and it provides a succinct way to merge two or more arrays.
  • First, install readline to read input from the user: – npm install –save readlineThen, import it: – Finally, reference it below: – If you run two instances of the client, you should be able to send and receive messages:

Build a Twelve-Factor Node.js App with Docker

  • In this course we will take a simple Node.js app that connects to a MongoDB database and uses an Express web server, and learn how to setup a full software development deployment process as well as how to properly Dockerize the app.
  • Well step through setting up proper version control techniques, managing configuring within the environment, setting up proper build/deploy/run processes, and all with abiding by Docker best practices.
  • Well also make sure our deployment is setup for scale, and have consistent development practices in place for reliable app deployments.

  • Many issue reports or help requests appear with few or no clues about the requirement, due to the background of the user: understanding about the problem, programming experience, interaction with community, language barriers etc.
  • Many users arrive in the nodejs/help repo through a notion of general support for any issues while using the Node.js stack.
