The chat is an example application demonstrating EliasDB's GraphQL interface. The application uses mutation operations to create chat messages and a subscription to receive new messages.
The subscription uses a WebSocket which is used to "push" new messages from the server to the client. As soon as a client sends a new message to the server the subscription ensures that all clients are updated.
