Cappuccino is a Push over

Category: Cappuccino, Examples

Elias Klughammer has implemented the Juggernaut push server in a Cappuccino app.

Always nice to have an open source bare bones sample app for a marriage like this. Nothing beats looking at the source.

Juggernaut seems really cool indeed and I’d love to be able to use it. But what you forget is that, although Flash is installed on almost 95% of desktop computers, it is not yet available on emerging Mobile platforms such as the iPhone and Android.
Which makes Comet more suitable to my Web application.

My hope is that as soon as the HTML5 push standard will be usable and implemented we’ll see pretty solutions with Flash fallback.

I have to agree with frenchStudent that solution based on SWF is like having all application written in flash (almost) – this does not apply too much to pure javascript solutions like HTTPStreaming.

You both are right!

I also didn’t like the fact that Flash is needed.

Therefore I just finished my work on the Cappuccino X Tornado application. So you can forget Flash.
