h1. Screen sharing + chat

The task is to make a screen sharing app with a chat functionality.

It is to be a client-server application, where the Host exposes its screen and plays as a chat server, and the Client is a web application that shows what the server exposes and also allows to send/receive short messages.

*The exact feature list and UI is up to you to decide, minimal requirements would be:*

* multiple simultaneous clients
* still picture of the screen, that is updated periodically
* a single global "chat room" accessible without authentication
* newly connected clients are not required to receive any chat history
* Host should be informed about clients connected/disconnected

*Some optional features:*

* Every individual client it should be a floating window in server to display a user mouse movements over screen in web application.
* Implement a file sharing between Host and Clients.

Consider this as a real open source project you'd publish. Think of MVP and invest in quality rather than additional functionality. A product should be seen as something that is a pleasure to use.

Make sure to include a README and good luck\!
