Description Brion Vibber 2011-06-07 21:16:26 UTC
Numerous *really cool things* in the future will depend on having infrastructure in place for sending real-time messages from the server to the front-end web pages (and vice-versa, though usually the upstream pings are an easier matter).

A scalable system probably needs additional servers to handle the WebSockets (or comet/long-poll style HTTP for compat with existing browsers), but a basic or more limited stub implementation could go into a standard PHP core that would still be useful for many things on smaller sites.

This may be more of a tracking bug for now. :)

We could write a client-side WebSockets layer that falls back to Comet if WebSockets aren't available. In fact, I'd be moderately surprised if something like that doesn't already exist.

...and again, support two entry points (WebSockets and Comet) on the server side.

There are many such libraries yes. :)

This isn't an actionable bug, and its dependencies don't really make sense (is all that going to happen and have a common interface?).
