Long distance relation but still want to watch a movie together?

Here comes Syncstart!

Last week I decided to build a synced timer between two web clients, without actually spend more then an afternoon on it.

The idea behind is pretty simple:

  • first client opens the webapp and receives a code
  • second client opens the webapp and enters the code.

Oh, and you find yourself playing rock-paper-scissors-lizard-spock too.

Since I need some data persistency and a free hosting service, I chose Heroku + mLab mongodb instance.
Heroku solutions are really became pretty neat for this kind of super-quick prototyping/ideas. :rocket:
The code is available on github.
