Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-841) Support WebSockets in continuous changes feeds
Date Tue, 31 Jan 2012 04:22:10 GMT


David Davis commented on COUCHDB-841:

I agree with Nathan.  WebSocket support would be nice, but Server Sent Events (SSE) is better
suited for the _changes feed. This task is over a year old with no movement.  Implementing
SSE in couchdb would be very easy.  I moved my vote to the #986 task; I suggest others do
the same.

> 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).
