Pusher Weekly Tutorial Roundup
Realtime features (notifications, chats, feeds) for apps
In this tutorial we create a chat app using Node.js and Express with Pusher, and build in a “who’s typing” feature, which displays the name or username of who is currently typing.
In this post Zan explains how to build a group chat application, and how to use Pusher to send and show realtime messages in the UI. The app we’re building is a simple chat app that uses Pusher to send and receive messages. It has two screens : a Login screen where we enter our Twitter username, and a Chat screen where we do the messaging.
In this tutorial, we are going to build a feed as an Android app to monitor the activity of a Node.js REST API. Every time an endpoint of the API is hit, it will publish an event with some information to a channel. This event will be received in realtime, on all the connected Android devices.
