via Real-Time Chat With Modulus and Node.js – Tuts+ Code Article.

In this tutorial, I will show you how to implement a real-time chat application with Node.js, Socket.IO and MongoDB, and then we will deploy this application to Modulus together.

Part 1: BUILDING A CHAT APP WITH CODENAME ONE


via Building A Chat App With Codename One Part I – Codename One.

In this tutorial we will cover the basics of building a good looking chat application with Codename One that will work on all mobile OS’s. We will cover everything from design to social network login and the actual chat behavior. This tutorial is for a hand coded application mostly because GUI builder tutorials require video and are thus less searchable.

This project is created with the new Java 8 support to make the code simple and short.

Building a Chat Application with SignalR


via Building a Chat Application with SignalR.

SignalR is an open source library for ASP.NET developers. It’s the equivalent of what Socket.IO is for Node.js (if you want, you can check out a comparison on Stack Overflow). SignalR can be used to provide real-time web features to your applications. Usually, if you are into Ember and JavaScript, you might be inclined to choose Socket.IO and stick to JavaScript. One of the reasons why I chose SignalR is that it has a more extended documentation and several resources to refer to. Moreover, you can get all the benefits of ASP.NET world for free.

In this article, I’ll show you how to build a simple chat application using SignalR. If you haven’t done it yet, I suggest you to read my previous one titled “A Chat Application Using Socket.IO” in order to have a more complete overview of these topics and then compare pros and cons of both the approaches.
