In this series of tutorials we will show how to build a fully functional jQuery chat app using jQuery and Bootstrap, the most commonly used framework in the world.
jQuery Chat App Overview
Our jQuery chat app will have an open channel (public chat room) which users will join anonymously. It will support sending/receiving messages in real time. Apart from this it will include features such as typing indicator, read receipt, media sharing and participant list.
Having in-app messaging is a necessity for apps these days. It has become the de-facto mode of communication in today’s fast changing world. It allows users to communicate right from within your app. It also plays a significant role in boosting user engagement and increasing app retention.
