Punters Private Messaging

At punters we decided to add in a private messaging feature for the users. For this feature to be useful, it needed to be real time. We used pusher to achieve this.

This project came together a lot faster than I anticipated. I worked on the front-end, accessing an API endpoint for the first set of data, then as the users used the feature we would be sending and receiving information from pusher. I also had to remember to send the data back to the api, so that the message history would remain visible after closing the chat.
