Centrifuge

In this tutorial, we will create a basic chat server using the Django framework and Centrifugo. Our chat application will have two pages:

  1. A page that lets you type the name of a chat room to join.
  2. A room view that lets you see messages posted in a chat room you joined.

The room view will use a WebSocket to communicate with the Django server (with help from Centrifugo) and listen for any messages that are published to the room channel.

Centrifuge

Centrifugo is a scalable real-time messaging server in a language-agnostic way. In this tutorial we will integrate Centrifugo with NodeJS backend using a connect proxy feature of Centrifugo for user authentication and native session middleware of ExpressJS framework.

Why would NodeJS developers want to integrate a project with Centrifugo? This is a good question especially since there are lots of various tools for real-time messaging available in NodeJS ecosystem.
