Web App to idle hundreds of accounts?

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask but for the past few weeks I've been trying to create an hourboosting service like freehourboost.com and stidler.com as a hobby project, but I'm not sure what I am doing is very effective.

Basically right now I have a single node server as the backend with react on the front, making them interact with socket.io. The node server has a single object that are filled up with instances of the SteamUser class but I don't know how efficient this will be when running hundreds of idles.

My question would be how should I handle hundreds of idles at once? I see stidler.com has 5+ idle servers, is that possible when using sockets? and if so how would I go about doing it?

If you wish to use websockets, socket.io-client allows you to connect to another http server that's using socket.io.

const io = require('socket.io-client');
const socket = io.connect('localhost:8080', {
	reconnect: true

socket.on('connect', (socket) => { 
    console.log('Connected to server!');

I hope this helps!
