We love coding and on so many occasions, we would often want to show off our project work or find a different way of writing up a function or two. There has not been however, a platform where we can easily talk and dynamically collaborate and share our code with our friends. Thus, ChatPlusPlus was born.
What it does:
It is a messaging service which also implements an IDE to write and edit code. The IDE is also able to be rerun with different input easily which makes it ideal for a flexible learning experience.
How we Built it:
We used Angular for the front-end and Firebase for the back-end with DigitalOcean as the website host. We used Sphere Engine to add the IDEs.
Using an external API to work with widgets Members are still new to Angular with limited time to learn it.
We created a functional messaging service web app.
What we learned:
We learned a variety of web technologies, and learned the importance of structured planning.
What’s next for our project:
We will polish the features of the website and we hope to deploy it. :)
