Many startups and new companies are developing a chat app using Reactjs and Nodejs as there is a fruitful result of using this technology as there are many blogs on the same with technical jargon . so, I decided to post a short article that covers all the steps to develop a chat app.

So, let’s start with socket.IO. It is a javascript library that is built for real time data transfer. It uses websocket protocol moreover it provides features such as async I/O, broadcasting, and storing data of clients.

Step 2
Install Socket.IO for Client

In the above steps we look out the steps while covering client side and server side both. If you are looking for a github repository and code that are used in the above steps, we have an article on built a chat app with all the detailed information.
