Complete the testing of the hook.io integration.

The idea is simple:

  • Calipso allows registering of events via the Event library (e.g. calipso.e.addEvent('MY_EVENT')).
  • You can register some events as Hook.IO events (calipso.e.addEvent('MY_EVENT',{hookio:true})
  • These events will be broadcast to the cluster when your app is started in app-cluster mode, meaning that all instances of calipso will respond to it.

Examples of where this is interesting:

  • Reload of configuration.
  • Update of shared in memory data (e.g. a cache set).
  • Parallel execution of tasks.

The basics for this are in train for 0.3.0 release.

Reacting to data emited from site A in site B is something I was also looking for with hook.io. One of the features we looked over was the ability to connect to the hook cloud from different machines.

You could also react to events from the hook.io cloud on the client side using hook.js
