  • Fusion

    Build real-time apps (Blazor included) with less than 1% of extra code responsible for real-time updates. Host 10-1000x faster APIs relying on transparent and nearly 100% consistent caching. We call it DREAM, or Distributed REActive Memoization, and it's here to turn real-time on!

    - Even frequent exchanges like, “Hey, I’m heading to Costco, need anything?” where the follow-up is easier spoken than typed, or may require a brief brainstorming - “Oh, remember our neighbors are visiting us on Sunday?”

    That’s how 8 years later (2 years ago) me and my co-founder decided to implement a new chat app.

    — Technology —

    To make it short, I’ll post just one point here: Actual Chat is based on Fusion (https://github.com/servicetitan/Stl.Fusion) - think MobX / computed observables, but distributed. In Actual Chat, the state it manages spans from our servers to every client app, creating an eventually consistent “state mesh”. The unified state management, where clients and servers use exactly the same abstraction to “observe” the changes happening to any bit of content, is quite a challenge from the technology standpoint. IMO it alone deserves a brief look.

    P.S. Thank you for reading up to this point!

  • Project mention: Live Streaming from Unity - Integrated Chat (Part 4) | dev.to | 2024-02-21

    We'll need WebSocket support, and once again there's a Unity package that we can use to help us out. Go to Window -> Package Manager to bring up the dialog and 'Add from git URL' using the NativeWebSocket (repo) GitHub URL https://github.com/endel/NativeWebSocket.git#upm.

    MIG is a .Net library providing an integrated solution for developing networked applications and real time web applications

  • Project mention: Sharing WebSocket Connections between Browser Tabs and Windows | /r/webdev | 2023-06-02

    The article is using a SharedWebWorker as a gateway to the same websocket connection. But this won't work on mobile browsers. So, as I said, you need a websocket connection for each tab. But they will connect to the same gateway that will provide the same data channel to each connected client. It can be SignalIR or any other one, like this one I wrote MIG and actually using for a home automation server.
