EventSource polyfill - http://www.w3.org/TR/eventsource/

Browser support:

Advantages:


EXAMPLE

server-side (node.js)

var http = require('http');
var fs = require('fs');

http.createServer(function (req, res) {
  var t = null;
  if (req.url.indexOf('/events') === 0) {

    res.writeHead(200, {
      'Content-Type': 'text/event-stream',
      'Cache-Control': 'no-cache',
      'Access-Control-Allow-Origin': '*'
    });

    res.write(':' + Array(2049).join(' ') + '\n'); //2kb padding for IE
    res.write('data: ' + Date() + '\n\n');

    t = setInterval(function () {
      res.write('data: ' + Date() + '\n\n');
    }, 1000);

    res.socket.on('close', function () {
      clearInterval(t);
    });


  } else {
    if (req.url === '/index.html' || req.url === '/eventsource.js') {
      res.writeHead(200, {'Content-Type': req.url === '/index.html' ? 'text/html' : 'text/javascript'});
      res.write(fs.readFileSync(__dirname + req.url));
    }
    res.end();
  }
}).listen(8081); //! port :8081

or use PHP (see php/events.php)

<?

  header('Content-Type: text/event-stream');
  header('Cache-Control: no-cache');
  header('Access-Control-Allow-Origin: *');

  // prevent bufferring
  if (function_exists('apache_setenv')) {
    @apache_setenv('no-gzip', 1);
  }
  @ini_set('zlib.output_compression', 0);
  @ini_set('implicit_flush', 1);
  for ($i = 0; $i < ob_get_level(); $i++) { ob_end_flush(); }
  ob_implicit_flush(1);

  // getting last-event-id from POST or from http headers
  $postData = @file_get_contents('php://input');
  parse_str($postData, $tmp);
  if (isset($tmp['Last-Event-ID'])) {
    $lastEventId = $tmp['Last-Event-ID'];
  } else {
    $lastEventId = @$_SERVER["HTTP_LAST_EVENT_ID"];
  }

  // 2kb padding for IE
  echo ':' . str_repeat(' ', 2048) . "\n";

  // event-stream
  for ($i = intval($lastEventId) + 1; $i < 100; $i++) {
    echo "id: $i\n";
    echo "data: $i;\n\n";
    sleep(1);
  }
