Lucius Digital: Building realtime group chats in Drupal | A ~3 year journey (be careful with ReactJS, MongoDB and other external tech)

Building realtime group chats in Drupal | A ~3 year journey (be careful with ReactJS, MongoDB and other external tech)
Last week we released ‘group chats’ in Drupal distribution OpenLucius, a social productivity platform. At first sight it maybe looks like a small module. But it took quite some effort to get to this release. Also because I wanted to release it open source: no concessions in (code) quality and maintainability.
