Chat without java
The flow of our app will be like so: the user will input a message in their app, which will send a POST request to our server.
In this example, I will use a simple Node JS server to provide a single API endpoint, for which you can see the code.
If you wish to download the demo Android app, you can do so on the Play Store, and this will allow you to chat with our web version to test things out.
If you get stuck at any point, feel free to browse the Android source code here and the Node JS server code here.
Feel more than free to let us know what you end up building with Pusher and Android!
Jamie is one of Pusher's Growth Engineers, and loves playing with new technology and working some realtime magic on them.
With the new 1.0.0 release of our Android library, we thought we’d create a walkthrough of how to easily build a mobile chat app with Pusher.
But this should be enough to demonstrate our chat app at work.Originally a literature graduate and founder of two magazines, he enjoys exploring the creative side of coding and is continually looking to learn new things.
