Chat Anarchy Server

This is the main server component of chat anarchy, a multi-user, multi-room chat using socket.io. A full chat anarchy server is just:

npm install --save socket.io chat-anarchy-server

Then, set up a socket.io server and initialize the chat-anarchy-server middleware:

server.js

var http = require('http'),
    fs = require('fs');
 
var server = http.createServer(function(req, res) {
    fs.createReadStream(__dirname + '/index.html').pipe(res);
});
 
require('socket.io')(server)
    .use(require('chat-anarchy-server')())
 
server.listen(process.env.PORT || 1844, process.env.IP || '127.0.0.1', function() {
    console.log("Chat anarchy is listening on port %d", server.address().port);
});

Finally, set up an index.html file that loads the socket.io client and listens and emits events:

index.html

<!doctype html>
<title>/</title>
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
<style>
    * {
        font: 18px monospace;
    }
</style> 
<input autofocus style="width:75%">
<script src="/socket.io/socket.io.js"></script>
<script>
    var socket = io()
        .on('connect', function() {
            document.title = location.pathname;
            socket.emit('join', location.pathname);
        })
        .on('announce', log)
        .on('message', function(data) {
            log(data.u + '' + data.m);
        })
 
    var input = document.getElementsByTagName('input')[0];
    input.onchange = function() {
        socket.send(this.value);
        this.value = '';
    };
    function log(m) {
        var p = document.createElement('p');
        p.appendChild(document.createTextNode(m));
        p.title = Date();
        document.body.insertBefore(p, input);
        p.scrollIntoView();
    }
</script>
