    Proxy server for adding push to your API

    Instead of letting clients directly interface with your services over websockets, consider using Pushpin [1], which allows you to completely isolate realtime communication from your services.

    As a bonus, it also provides you the ability to cycle (redeploy/restart) your services without your clients having to reconnect (that's where the name comes from). And as you can imagine - because communication with your services is entirely stateless it scales like crazy.
