使用nodejs + socket.io和mysql聊天
So I want to develop a chat system based on nodejs and socket.io, I have made a prototype and it works, the only thing that is stuck in my mind is how to store the chat messages in the database.
I guess is not a good idea to store a message when a user hits the enter button, because this is live chat you could have 1000 just from a user in 30-60 min.
The question is WHEN to store the data in the database, because I don't think that storing right away when the user hits enter will work on the long term?
The chat works on the same idea as facebook.
