After much thinking about which route I would like to go when refactoring a web application which previously used server side rendering, I now almost came to the conclusion that I want to handle all my connections via websockets. Not just for the fun of it, but I can see some very tempting advances of how to get all the needed data to the client. Unfortunately I haven’t found much information about how ember data plays together with websockets. Preferably I would like to use SockJS which offers fallback solutions in case the websocket can not be established. Secondly I would like to refactor the backend to use vertx, which in terms provides a full server side SockJS implementation .
I have found one or two custom implementations of adapters to use websockets like , but currently nothing to use SockJS. Has anyone already tried to accomplish that? If not I would really like to give that a try, but I am pretty new to ember and the whole websocket thing, so any pointers where to start are much welcome.
