More Comet Stuff...
Tuesday, January 03, 2012 07:39 PM

As you may have read in my previous blog, I'm working on some ideas for building real-time web applications.  I just finished a meeting with Prophet and Darkman, and I'm excited.

Darkman wasn't as interested in my ideas as I'd hoped, but I don't think I expressed them completely.  They're still in the idea stage, though, which doesn't really help... sometimes it's tough to express ideas, especially technical ones.

So, my goal for next week's meeting: I'm going to come up with the fundamentals of the "CS-Comet" system.  I need to have:

  1. Some documentation or graphs with the basics
    • explanation of server-side stuff
    • explanation of client-side (browser) stuff
    • how it works together
    • why it might be a better solutions than something like "node.js"
  2. A test environment to show what's happening
    • a chat system should do the trick
    • how to show what is happening... (Firebug, maybe... plus stuff on the page)
    • show a running log that shows the UI stuff along with chat stuff... yeah.

I think that's a good list.  Now I'm off to start writing stuff down and maybe throw some code out there.
