Building a Realtime Chat App with React, Laravel, and WebSockets

You use real-time communication every day. It is the simultaneous exchange of information between a sender and a receiver with almost zero latency. Internet, landlines, mobile/cell phones, instant messaging (IM), internet relay chat, videoconferencing, teleconferencing, and robotic telepresence are all examples of real-time communication systems.

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to build a real-time public chat app using React.js, Laravel, and Ably. You’ll use React.js to build the frontend/UI and Laravel to interact with Ably Realtime APIs to facilitate real-time communication. Anyone on the internet would be able to use this app to post messages to a public chat room and talk anonymously with other connected users. By building this kind of application, you’ll learn about the relevant concepts for building applications that need real-time data transfer.
