Poker in Place

nclarksf profile image Nicholas Clark ・1 min read

Released my project to the public today. It's called Poker in Place and is a live poker experience with Twilio Video. The idea is to replace the feeling of house games with video while we're stuck at home.

Check it out https://pokerinplace.app/ - Any feedback welcomed and source code coming soon.

sick app dude! Twiliio makes integrating video conferencing so much easier. any chance we can take a look at the source? I am curious how you implemented the backend. I am curious how far you got in terms of hiding unaurthorize state of the poker game from the client.

Hey Sitian,

I'll open up the source in a day or so. I accidentally leaked a key before, so want to make sure I don't this time!

As for the state, I used Firebase/Firestore and rules around collections/sub-collections to allow access to certain documents (player cards) to only the player themself.

Good job on the access control! It's amazing you did all that given the nature of it being a hack project! If I had only a few hours to spare, I might have just set up the poker state on the client side for the MVP.

You released a very interesting game, I never thought about his idea, it is really boring when you play on poker platforms alone, here you can speak to them and see them, that makes the game alive. Moreover, if you have enough experience in real poker than you can guess if their are bluffing just by looking at the camera. So, I can say that you did a very good job and you're a real genius man, I should suggest this idea to casinodeps.co.nz/real-money-casinos/. The only thing I will ask you to change is the background of the cards.

Nice app! As I am a gambler, I follow news and apps on this theme. I like to play poker and mobile casino in general. To have more information, I use the CasinoTop platform. I like that here I can find a lot of useful tips. I think that your app is good and can become popular among players.
