Shaveet comet server

Shaveet is a zero-config JSONP/CORS long-polling(AKA comet) server.

Why does it exist?

In Binfire we needed a way to send realtime updates to connected clients.
Looking around for solutions we encouter hookbox which was almost what we needed but integrated with the application using webhooks and also was written in eventlet while all our infrastrcture is written with gevent.
Shaveet was written in a way that allows minimal changes in the application code to integrate with it.


Shaveet is avaliabe in PyPI,just run: sudo pip install shaveet
