How to create an Azure-based real time Chat Application using Firebase and jQuery

In this post, we’re going to show you step by step instructions on how to create a Chat application that’s similar to a group chat messenger where many people at any given time can read and send messages with the group. In this example we’re going to use the following technologies:

  1. Firebase
  2. HTML
  3. Bootstrap
  4. jQuery

Eventually we will host the application on the Microsoft Azure website, and we’ll use Visual Studio IDE to develop the application.

You can see the real time chat application we are going to build in this article live at: http://igchatapp.azurewebsites.net/chat.html . Feel free to chat with us at this URL!
