Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-841) Support WebSockets in continuous changes feeds
Date Sat, 04 Sep 2010 10:52:36 GMT


Dirkjan Ochtman commented on COUCHDB-841:

I should note here, I asked Bob Ippolito (the main author of mochiweb, which is used for CouchDB's
http layer) if/when mochiweb growed WebSocket support. He mentioned that someone on github
has implemented it, but he will hold off from merging it until someone explicitly asks him
to work on that (since he doesn't need WebSocket for his own use cases).

As for "final spec", I'm not sure there'll be something like a version 1.0, but there'll be
a working draft or something that has reached consensus and is implemented in the same way
in several different browsers (likely Gecko and Webkit).

> Just wanted to put this on the roadmap: it would be nice if continuous changes feeds
(and maybe some other things in CouchDB, not sure) could support WebSockets. WebSockets are
an emerging standard (there's no final spec yet) with implementations in both recent Chrome
and Firefox (beta) releases that allows servers to push information to the browser without
having to do polling (or longpolling).
