Meteor Slack

A chat application made in 25 steps, and designed to look a little bit like Slack.

With channels for multiple users, markdown, gravatar, an autosizing textarea and a list of channels in a sidebar.


This code is part of the Meteor Workshop that takes place on the 14th of May 2015 in Gothenburg Sweden.

It was made solely do demonstrate the efficiency and the simple nature of Meteor.
