Faye

Faye is a set of tools for dirt-simple publish-subscribe messaging between web clients. It ships with easy-to-use message routing servers for Node.js and Rack applications, and clients that can be used on the server and in the browser.

See faye.jcoglan.com for documentation.

Development

To hack on Faye, you'll need Ruby and Jake, which we use to build the JavaScript packages. Once you have Ruby installed:

sudo gem install jake

Just run `jake` from the root of the project to build the JavaScripts.

The Ruby version depends on the following gems, which you'll need to install:

sudo gem install hoe eventmachine em-http-request rack thin json

To-do

  • Let local server-side clients listen to /meta/* channels

  • Provide support for user-defined /service/* channels

  • Allow server to scale to multiple nodes
