And in the app.
Bryan Bryce What program did you use to check the database? And if we go back to our chat and refresh the - we see our existing messages are loaded.
Now we can use channel. ChatView do use TeacherWeb, :view end With that we can create the template for our chat room. If we go to our chat again and then inspect the browser console, we see our message is logged letting us know we ed our channel successfully. phoeenix
We only see the messages for that specific room are displayed. Great, now we need to save our messages when someone posts one in the chat. Now that we have our working, we need to create create a way for users to post messages to the room. Caht default code also shows how we can channels with a topic. CreateMessages do use Ecto.
We see our schema with our body and name fields. If we refresh the - our messages are lost. Our last piece will be to update our template to load any existing messages for the room.
Then if we do a quick check of the database - we see our messages are there. This will be a little different from the chat room application we built in episode 38 - where chatt had a single room.
This will send our event to the server, where it will be picked up by our WaterCoolerChannel. Once we have those we can send them to the server with channel.
Great, and we can also test that our messages are pushed out only to people in that specific chat room. UserSocket do use Phoenix. And go back to the browser and post some messages.
And we see our chat box and form. We see that our lo and the name of our chat room is being displayed. Now we can use the room to initiate a new channel for our topic, using the room we got from the path. But what we have here will work for our application.
Since the topic is stored as a field on our socket, we can pattern match on it to get the room. Controller do use ChatWeb, :controller alias Chat.
