Since we all are still stuck at home due to pandemic, it has become difficult to collaborate on projects. So I thought, it would be helpful if there is an app that allows us to share document pieces or maybe code snippets with others in real-time so that multiple people can work on the document at the same time. This led me to use WebSockets and create Sharer-A real-time editor.
What it does
It is a text sharing app that allows users to simultaneously change a piece of text. It also has provisions for rooms.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
I was finding it difficult to display the entire text to a new user in the room. I took me some time to implement that successfully.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I am proud of successfully having used socket.io to create this web-application.
What I learned
I learned a lot about WebSockets.
What's next for Sharer
The next versions would see options liking saving file, adding custom options while editing, etc.
