Welcome to Atmosphere: The Asynchronous WebSocket/Comet Framework
The Atmosphere Framework contains client and server side components for building Asynchronous Web Applications. The majority of popular frameworks are either supporting Atmosphere or supported natively by the framework. The Atmosphere Framework supports all major Browsers and Servers
Atmosphere transparently supports WebSockets, Server Sent Events (SSE), Long-Polling, HTTP Streaming (Forever frame) and JSONP.
You can get atmosphere.js in several ways. If you use a script tag whose src attribute is set to the below one, browser may not load it because the content type served by raw.github.com is text/plain.
Also it is available from the following places, but there may be delays between a release and its availability. We don't manage these ways officially but they are managed by open source community so you can contribute.
If you need to support Inetrnet Explorer 7, Firefox 3.0, Safari 3 and Opera 10 and lower versions, a
JSON.parse polyfill is henceforth required like:
npm install atmosphere.js
bower install atmosphere
It is recommended to always use the version that matches Atmosphere's runtime.
Latest version may work with lower version, but not officially tested.
