I’m sitting here and thinking about how to notify my end-users that there is a new version deployed. My situation is that we have an internal customer service app that our staff uses the whole day and we usually do a couple (5-10) deploys a day. The problem is that the staff never notices, until the next day when they start the app, or we have to send them an email to tell them to reload the page. this feels a bit akward and, to be honest, dumb.
Is anyone else doing something cool or are there any good best practises for this for client-apps?
Maybe notifying them on the page with websockets, or maybe even push the new code somehow directly with websockets… html5 appcache have been in my head as something that could be utilized as well…
So, how do you do it?
