Seaside Meteoroid

Last published: July 10, 2009 by 'lfernandez'

SeasideMeteoroid framework is an implementation of Comet (1) on top of Seaside.
The main idea of SeasideMeteoroid is to have a live and endless connection between some web browser and the Seaside application.
This is reach by leaving an open connection with the browser which had request a Seaside site. Then, the only thing you need to use is JavaScript and AJAX to "send messages" into the client.

This work is based in the work of Lukas Renggli in SeasideComet.

For live examples see the bundle Meteoroid-Examples :)
