I’m working on a view that uses server-sent events to receive log lines from another application and display them in a filterable list. Essentially, the view starts with an empty array as the model, and when the event source receives new log lines, it
pushObjects them into the model. The view iterates over the model and puts each log line in an
Below the list of log lines, there’s an input box that allows the user to filter the logs either by
String#indexOf or via a regular expression. Currently, whenever the value of this input value changes, the controller filters the model by the user input and re-renders the list of log lines.
On a busy app, this can quickly escalate to thousands of lines being filtered. I realize at a certain point, I’ll have to limit the number of lines that can be kept around in the browser to filter, but I’m curious what I can do to stretch that limit as far as possible.
