DOWNLOAD SOURCE CODE

 

Setup

 

  1. Sign up for a free PubNub account to get your Pub/Sub API keys.

PubNub Signup

  1. You need to enable presence to detect the number of players in the channel. This prevents having more than two players in a given channel. Go to your PubNub Admin Dashboard, click on the Demo Project App, or create a new app for this project, and click on Keyset. Scroll down to Application add-ons and toggle the Presence switch to on. Keep the default values the same.

git clone https://github.com/ocastroa/react-tictactoe.git

 

cd react-tic-tac-toe

 

  1. Open the project in your favorite text editor.
  2. Go to App.js and replace ‘ENTER_YOUR_PUBLISH_KEY_HERE’ and ‘ENTER_YOUR_SUBSCRIBE_KEY_HERE’ with the keys you got from Step 1.
  3. Install the dependencies by running the script that’s in the root directory. Make sure to make the script executable first.

 

npm install

 

npm start

 

The directory structure will look like this as shown below

 

 

After this when you start the react.js application your game will start and the screenshot will look like this
