Make the transition to Node.js if you are a Java, PHP, Rails or .NET developer with these resources to help jumpstart your Node.js knowledge plus pick up some development tips.  Brought to you in partnership with IBM.

PeerJS is a JavaScript library which acts as a wrapper for WebRTC and allows you to create peer connections very easily. With PeerJS you can create such a connection in just 3 lines of code.

PeerJS deals with the WebRTC handshake and allows connection by peer ID. However, to establish a connection, you need a PeerServer. This is written in Node.js and you need to set it up.

No data passes through the server – it is only used to broker the connection between peers.
