Pointing Poker -- November 1, 2020 10:16 PM

I developed a Pointing Poker backend and frontend web application (GitHub Page) that works well enough for an internal team to use. It requires nodejs on the backend. The front end was built with React.

I built it because I was frustrated with the performance and reliability of public servers, and because I wanted to learn more how to use React beyond a trivial tutorial. It's based on websockets, and all data is immediately replicated between all clients. There's no code to reconnect if the websocket fails or if websockets don't work, but it's worked without a single flaw within an internal network, which is how I've used it.

Thanks to Mischa Berlin for a submission allowing random name generation!

Read on for more details on the implementation.
