Can anyone tell me?

Hi! You can do it with node.js + socket.io as the backend, and HTML as the frontend. Make sure you know javascript.

@9751 Hi,
If you need to make a ChatRoom, you need to learn these two things so that you can start making your own!
They are:-
1. Frontend:- Languages like HTML, CSS, and Javascript...
2. Backend:- Languages like Python, PHP, Java, Ruby...

And the second thing is that you can find many tutorials specifically talking about this ChatRoom like this YouTube video or this Website or maybe this too

Hope this helps
Please mark my answer if this helps

you need two things:

  1. frontend
  2. backend

front end is HTML, CSS, to make everything look the way it is. then you need to actual make the thing using servers. you can find plenty of tutorial on youtube for chatwebsite, like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jD7FnbI76Hg&t=2903s
