The Present

Start treating client side events as first class citizens inside your Rails application with a built in WebSocket server. Sure, WebSockets aren't quite universal yet. That's why we also support streaming HTTP. Oh, and if you don't mind running a separate process, you can support just about any browser through Flash sockets without changing a line of code.

The Future

The long term goal for this project is simple. Reduce the need to move application logic on to the client while still providing the same level of interaction and responsiveness users have grown to expect from a modern web application. We hope to isolate the responsibility of JavaScript to the presentation layer and keep business logic nicely organized on the server.
