Launching pad for multiplayer apps in React and NodeJS

I added a new repo:

https://github.com/crb02005/chat-app

It is going to be a launching point for building multiplayer apps.

I currently didn’t’ implement any authentication, because you can use:

http://www.passportjs.org/ which has several great strategies.

At the moment I’m less concerned with authenticating so I’m going to defer that.

I was able to run both the react and the node apps and connect and send messages across the wire.

The next steps are going to be adding functionality. The first is going to be:

/roll (1-100)d(2|3|4|6|8|10|12|16|20)

When in doubt add a dice roller.
