The inspiration behind this project are our friends. Most messaging platforms are generic and can be used to
connect with anyone across the world. But messaging is aptly meant to be between friends in a University,
workplace, family. It is a small world and many people limit themselves a specific group of people. Me and my
teammate developed a simple Facebook like chat application to be used only among friend groups.
What it does
It provides a User Interface to Chat between 2 friends.
How we built it
running the API code, the front end code uses these API's and provides a chat interface.
Challenges we ran into
We ran into challenges when the API's code crashed many times, Front end code not able to connect to API's,
Displaying the username of the friend in the Chat Application.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud that our hardwork has developed an application that can always help a friends group stay
connected at anytime.
What we learned
We learnt React, ES6 syntax, Socket.io library

1) Deploy the App to cloud
