LiveCode Connections with Websockets

Post by wmiriye » Thu Oct 29, 2020 7:41 am

This subject was brought up last year. Checking in to see if there has been any updates on real time notifications. Can LC connect to a websocket server. I am trying to create a simple chat like android app like WhatsApp.

My backend server is powered by laravel websockets. If anyone has done this, please point me to the right direction.

It should be possible for someone to extend LiveCode's libURL to handle http connections upgraded to websockets.

But at the moment I don't know of anyone in a position to do so.

LiveCode does support regular sockets quite well, which are simpler to initiate and more efficient in throughput.

Is there any sort of extension for Laravel to allow native clients to use regular sockets?
