Instant bi chat without signing up
Action Cable offers server-side code to broadcast certain content (think new messages or notifications) over the channel, to a subscriber.The subscriber is instantiated on the client-side with a handy Java Script function that uses j Query to append new content to the DOM.A message will have content, and it will belong to a user and belong to a chatroom.A user will have a username, and will have many messages.The remainder of this tutorial will assume that we have already generated the migrations necessary to create the chat rooms, messages and users table, and that we have already defined our Chatroom, User and Message model to have the relationships described above.Let's take a quick look at our models before we move on.
But as more and more consumers and developers began demanding real-time functionality, and as newer frameworks like Phoenix arrived to meet that demand, Rails felt the need to deliver—and in fact, Action Cable draws some inspiration from Phoenix channels. I've followed the development of Action Cable closely, and before it was merged into Rails 5, I would say that it easier than polling.Her first love is Ruby on Rails, although she has developed projects with and written about Rails, Ember and Phoenix.Recent years have seen the rise of "the real-time web." Web apps we use every day rely on real-time features—the sort of features that let you see new posts magically appearing at the top of your feeds without having to lift a finger.In this post, we'll be taking a look at the second approach.Action Cable uses the Rack socket hijacking API to take over control of connections from the application server.
