    Default sencha io messages

    sencha io messages


    Hi;
    I am playing around with the idea of adding an anonymous chat to my sencha touch app.
    my requirements are very simple:
    -single chat room for everyone
    -user publishes message to everyone (pub/sub only)
    -no need for user authentication - users are anonymous

    I just want to know if sencha io is a good place for such an implementation. as its an anonymous chat, I only need a single user that probably everyone will use, only one queue, etc...
    am I right here?
    also, I ado I even need a user/user group/app/app version etc? i only need a queue for my app that everyone can connect to. I definetly don't want users to log in with credentials to use this feature (cause they'll simply not use it)
    thanks in advance.

    The issue I see with only having one user is how do you know what message belongs to what client user?

    valid point
    I am not sure cause i dont really now the api yet...
    Assuming i dont care where the message came from i guess it can work?
    Also, assuming i already manage users in a db for my non sencha desktop website, what is the best practice here? Can i map user auth to my db? Or do i need to port all my users to sencha login?

    Hello,

    Yes, SIO does support anonymous messaging.

    You can create a named queue and pass all your messages through that.

    No need for any user authentication.

    The message you send would be:

    {from:'john',message:'yes anon msg wks!'}

    Then you can use the from as the label in your chat widget.

    John: yes anon msg wks!

    You can send whatever you want through. It's a simple JS object that's turned into a JSON for transmission.

    John
