Woow: Brain Dump of Real Time Web(RTW) and WebSocket

One thing I know we can all agree on is that realtime web apps are the future and the only way we will be developing web apps within a few years time.

Same or shared code and variables on server and client. For that, we need a same language. So, node.js is the only solution. :: Building The Next SoundCloud - SoundCloud Backstage SoundCloud Backstage :: Choosing a web application framework (using Node.js) - Stack Overflow :: Node.js Frameworks Comparison - WorkFlowy :: Tower.js vs. Flatiron vs. SocketStream vs. Derby –

Author of SocketStream:

As many of you know, Meteor (, a new realtime web framework was released yesterday. I am taking the time
to comment about it here as I believe it is the first real 'competitor' to SocketStream.

Models are currently the greatest reason to use Meteor instead of SocketStream.
I have decided not to integrate any Model/ORM layer into the SocketStream core.

Instead I want to focus on what I believe to be the fundamental difference between the two:

The most important difference is scalability. Nowjs does not have the plumbing necessary to persist sessions and pub/sub info to a common store so when a client gets disconnected they can reconnect to any process and pick up where they left off. You’d have to write that yourself with Nowjs. It’s a core concept in SocketStream.
