Waku Web App using js-waku

Hi Everyone,

Moving forward with js-waku, we now have a web app that implements waku relay. This means it can connect to other waku relay nodes to receive and send messages to the waku network.

It is still a work in progress, it currently using websockets without ssl to connect to a remote go-waku node so some hacking around is needed and it only works in Firefox.

For your security, it is best to revert the changes once you have finished playing around with the web app!

  1. Go to about:config
  2. Search for network.websocket.allowInsecureFromHTTPS
  3. Change it from false to true
  4. Go to waku web chat
  5. Set your nick with /nick, e.g. /nick satoshi
  6. Enjoy the wakuv2 powered chat experience!

This web app is a demo for the js-waku library and mean to demonstrate how the library work, it is clunky and we know it :slight_smile:

Next, some API improvement, supporting wss (secure websockets to avoid the hack above) and demonstrating waku store in the web app!

Feel free to leave any comments or feedback here, bugs can be reported on the repo.
