Displaying Chat Messages

In this session we experiment with <template></template> and JavaScript to display our messages. We get to see how to properly clone template contents and how adding the clone to the DOM impacts the ability to interact with the original object after the fact. (hint: not well)


We also start looking at translating our author IDs into display names and avatars. For now, we are limited to only working with display name and avatars for people who have registered for Astrocasts directly, but it works great so show how it will work in the future.
