Real-Time Web Apps

Real-Time Web Apps:

The slides from my MadMongers Real-Time Web Apps talk are now available online. 

[From my blog.]


Web::Hippie does support XHR long-polling, not just websockets, although that does not work so great in older versions of IE because they do not let you view partial XHR responses. It also has a straight poll fallback mode.

Nice slides. Why no WebRTC?

WebRTC is a free, open project that enables web browsers with Real-Time Communications (RTC) capabilities via simple Javascript APIs. For example, RTCDataChannel allows for Browser-to-Browser message passing (e.g. chat or file transfer).

I'm thinking that WebRTC might replace the cloud hosting services that don't have any server-side storage, provided that peers have a way to discover each other.
