What you need to know first
Although as a blogger, I mostly try to write for new programmers. I assume you who are currently reading this post is a absolute beginner. But if you don’t know that this kind of projects need various kind of module, package and framework. A single article can’t focus on everything from zero to hundred.
The solution is that I am skipping the detailing for those things which tutorials are very available on web already. But of course I am mentioning about those and trying to give resource to learn them. Below are what we need with short details and tutorial source. Go get some basic practice before we jump into our project.
Ionic 4 Framework
MySQL Database System
Primarily I have choose to use mysql database as the data volt. It will store our messages and user information. You can search on the web for ‘database’ and ‘MySQL’ term to get yourself acknowledged. Also practice with some SQL query. We will need them with socket. MySQL can be practice locally by install local server like xampp or wamp.
https://www.apachefriends.org/index.html – for local server to practice mysql. You also can learn the basic of xampp from the web. It will help you to understand how you can maintain MySQL databases from the phpMyadmin control panel
