About the client

Cavoke Client (aka. main cavoke client, main client, host application) is the application that a user interacts with before joining the desired game.

This application dynamically launches QML client components and attaches to them, allowing them to send requests through it: without any authentication, game session information (this is added by the cavoke client).

Cavoke Client is also responsible for persisting the connection, authentication. All game rooms, sessions interfaces are also shown directly in the cavoke client application.
