This is very basic implementation of pusherapp.com api subset on top of socket.io.

Setup

Add the gem to your Gemfile and run the bundle command to install it.

gem 'pusher.io'

Run the generator to create the initial files.

$ rails g pusher.io:install

Next, start up pusher.io.

$ node pusher.io.js

For production

$ NODE_ENV=production node pusher.io.js

Add the JavaScript file to your application.js file manifest.

// require pusher.io/client

See socket.io docs for Redis config. Make your changes in pusher.io.js

Easy SSL support. Just add ssl_key and ssl_cert paths to your env in config/pusher.io.yml:

production:
    ...
    ssl_key: "/path/to/server.pem"
    ssl_cert: "/path/to/certificate_chain.pem"

Usage

Include pusher io tags in your html head:

<%= pusher_io_tags %>

var channel = pusher.subscribe('notifications');
channel.on('alert', function(data) {
    alert(data);
});

// or use bind
channel.bind('alert', function(data) {
    alert(data);
});
