Is it possible for Wolfam Development Platform to use sockets or anything other for real time communication? For example, in Javascript I can use RethinkDb, Firebase, socket.io or something similar. For Java I can use sockets. For .NET SignalR. Is it a way to enable real time communication?


There is now an experimental feature to communicate in real-time in Wolfram:


It can be used to communicate between two Wolfram Clouds. You can also simulate ChannelSend function by sending HTTP query.


You can connect to sockets with SocketConnect, but I'm not aware of a built-in way to bind a socket.
