React Chat App


This project was to create a long-polling chat application which would allow multiple users to chat. This app is built with Backbone and React as the Models and Views for the framework and uses Bootstrap CSS and components for layout. The app uses gravatars based on the user’s email used to sign in and displays the active users in the chat room on the right sidebar (try it with more than one person to get a feel). The small persistence server on the backend only stores the last 10 messages overall.
