  • Loads previous chatroom history (up to 150 messages) when switching rooms
  • Authorizes via reddit and pairs a cookie with a user in the server for Authorization
  • Only broadcasts messages to those present in the room, not to others in different rooms
  • Different color avatars, autogenerated from placeskull.com
  • Enforces a single WebSocket for each client, closing the connection when switching rooms
  • Each client reads and writes to a different goroutine (2 goroutines/client)
  • Database writes are performed in a separate goroutine
