How to create live chat server on website using node js and socket io?

Hey I am new to Glitch and I want to create my own live chat server with node js and socket io. I found this respository on github and it would be nice to create one like this (of course its only a test. later I will add some nice Graphics ect.).
Can someone help me with this or send me a tutorial? Unfortunately I haven’t found anything on the internet.

Thanks in advance :smile:

Hey thanks for the tutorial, but it’s an example with localhost and not via a website. Isn’t that a problem?

localhost:8000 → serves to or whatever your project domain is

Here’s a project example for glitch that i found:
