Join Alex Banks for an in-depth discussion in this video Responding with a joined event, part of Building a Polling App with Socket IO and React.js.
- When the server receives a joint event from the audience,…we need to respond to the client to let them know…that we have received that information successfully.…So we're going to do so by opening up our app-server…and starting here on line 21,…where we listen for the join event…and we have this callback handler,…we're going to add some more code to the callback handler.…So instead of just console logging the audience member,…the first we're going to do is we're going to create…a variable to store this new member.…And this is going to be an object literal,…because what we're going to do is we're going to store…the member's name along with their socket id.…
So we'll give this literal an id of this.…This inside of this callback function here…refers to the socket.…So this is our current socket,…or the one socket that just emitted a join event.…This socket has a unique id.…So the member id, we are just going to go ahead…and associate with the socket id.…Next, the member also has a name…and we can get that information from our payload,…
