A real-time app made with node.js, socket.io, express …

This past weekend I decided to work on a pet project – build a real-time app using node.js.

Modules used: socket.io, express, jade, sqlite3.

    Wow. That was nice. Only issue seems to be that the news items don’t auto update. The push to each browser window doesn’t seem working.

      The version of node is v0.6.7 and the browsers I’ve tested so far are google chrome, firefox, safari and IE 7 (for IE7 only deletion doesn’t get updated real-time due to some js error).
