Some notes and links on websockets with rails

I have been doing some research on getting WebSockets running with Rails.

I wanted to share some links and notes I have found/made to make it easier for folk who will be doing their own research at some time.

ActionController::Live

This is the new Rails 4 way of using sockets. Personally, I don't like the syntax we have to use for ActionController::Live

Websocket-Rails

This is a gem for getting sockets running on rails. I like it, the syntax is nice and clean and can be extended to use Redis as a go between for any data.

Other Solutions

There are other ways of achieving this, using node is one way a lot of solutions go for using things like socket.io

Have you any experience?

I would love to chat with anyone who has had any experience with this, any great gems or samples I should be looking at?
