I am planning to develop an online multiplayer game with the following features

  • An interface through which players can play and chat
  • Players are shown a list of active players and their rankings so that they can choose their opponents
  • Players can set up their boards. Once done, the game starts in which each player makes a move in their turn

This will be my first attempt at game development. I am looking for softwares/frameworks which I can use to accomplish my task with the least time spent on boilerplate code and such stuff.

Presently, I plan to use the following:

  • React and Bootstrap/Materialise for the frontend GUI
  • Sockets in Java / socket.io for handling the communication
  • RESTful APIs for storing the scores and login data of the users on SQL database

Are these feasible? Do there exist better/easier methods to implement the above things?
