EliasDB Chat Example

This example demonstrates a simple application which uses advanced features of EliasDB:

  • Node modification via ECAL script
  • User Management
  • GraphQL subscriptions

The tutorial assumes you have downloaded EliasDB, extracted and build it. For this tutorial please execute "" or "start.bat" in the subdirectory: examples/chat

After starting EliasDB point your browser to:


The generated default key and certificate for https are self-signed which should give a security warning in the browser. After accepting you should see a login prompt. Enter the credentials for the default user elias:

Username: elias
Password: elias

The browser should display the chat application after clicking Login. Open a second window and write some chat messages. You can see that both windows update immediately. This is done with GraphQL subscriptions.
