ColdChat Client (chat app)
IMPORTANT: click "show more"
chat app in node.js using socket.io
I've made many chat apps previously but I got inspiration for a simplistic-looking, console-based one from the previously trending "ctrl chat" (by@blockowo). I felt bad about its many serious security flaws and literally zero validation. Seeing it get destroyed by exploiters made me want to start working on a secure chat app with validation, backend word filters, powerful anti-spam, and a proper account system. (I've also been begged to make a console based one because people complain about school blocking repl pages blah blah)
So far I've made the basic security infrastructure and a simple layout, plus a powerful anti spam. This of course isn't finished and there are PLENTY of updates planned and coming soon.
- more efficient validation process using socket IDs
- ascii emotes
- premium status with perks and whatnot
- private chat rooms
- your suggestions! (leave a comment)
