Discord is a great place, but it can be stressful at times, more than one person messaging you at a time, getting pinged every second (and that can be abused), and its hard to find friends that have the same hobbies as you on discord, so we made OneRoom.
What it does
Its multiple chatrooms based off of your hobbies that allows you to chat with people based off of your interests, its also rooms with a limited amount of people (around 10-15 depending on popularity), which allows conversations to happen without interruption from others.
How we built it
We used HTML, CSS, JS for the frontend. While PHP, and JQuery for the chat/backend
Challenges we ran into
Getting the chats to individually work was hard itself, I learned alot about PHP through these challenges.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Just making this project is an accomplishment, because if it becomes popular, this could become something we can make a business out of.
What we learned
I learned alot about PHP/JS, while Thomas learned alot of HTML and CSS
What's next for OneRoom
We hope that it becomes popular, I want to try to add DMs as well so then you can privately chat with the people from chat.
