Realtime generally refers to a user experience where content is updated live; for example: a new comment shows up on a page while you're viewing it, or chat notification "your friend is typing a message."

Sweetroll

sweetroll has basic realtime support — when the current page is changed, a "reload this page" box appears.

Since Sweetroll knows what feeds are affected by the creation/edit of an entry, this works with categories, tag feeds, as well as the entry's own page. The notifications are delivered via server-sent events, using a tiny web component that unhides itself when a notification that mentions the current page is received.

Silo Examples

Facebook

Facebook shows (since mid 2016?) when someone is writing a comment on your post, in real time as they’re presumably typing:

  • "... A friend is typing a comment…"
