Thanks for this tutorial @richardeschloss ...it's exactly what I was looking for.
One question..when you say "I wont track your chats"...does the data hit your servers? Does this codebase depend on any 3rd party servers or services at all? Thx!

I won't track your chats because I technically can't. The chats only go between your IO clients and IO server. There is no code in the plugin that relays the chats to anywhere else. I believe the same can be said for the underlying EngineIO. However, the beautiful thing with open source is, if anyone does not trust my statement, he/she is free to look in the source code (plugin.js) to search for suspicious code and comment out as much or as little of the code as desired. However, I don't have any such tracking code in my plugin.

@richardeschloss that makes sense, thanks for clarifying :) I'll try it out and let you know if any questions come up!
