WebRTC audio/video conferencing app with user authentication using ReactJS.
Simple ReactJS app that interacts with the WebRTC APIs to establish audio/video conference between users, without a trip through a server.
To connect two users over WebRTC, we exchange information to allow browsers to talk to each other. This process is called signaling and it is facilitated by using NodeJS and socket server chained to the express 4.0 engine to provide the plumbing. Other than signaling, no data has to be sent through a server. When a connection is successfully established and authentication and authorization are complete, stream data exchanged between peers is directed to a React component for rendering.
Once you have forked this project, go ahead and use npm through the command line to install all required dependecies:
npm install npm install webpack -global webpack --progress -p npm start
Demo of the app can be found on Heroku: https://webrtc-video-room.herokuapp.com/
