PubSubHubbub [Apr. 26th, 2009|10:04 pm]

[Tags|, ]

Brett and I made a bunch of progress on PubSubHubbub today. Bunch of new docs, two Perl modules, protocol clarifications & spec cleanup, hub server updates, etc.

If you haven't read about it, or it's been awhile, I encourage you to go check it out.

We're looking for help with client libraries and general involvement if you have any time! Join the list and claim a language / CMS.

I browsed through the docs and example, but don't have a great sense of it yet, so:

Does it aim for long-term persistent subscriptions, or many short-term?

Notably, I want to support someone loading up an entry, subscribing to it for the 5 minutes they're viewing it, and getting notifications of new comments on that entry. This would be a very broad approach: many active subscriptions at any time with relatively little activity, but some hot spots (news).

I'm picturing this mostly for the Dreamwidth federation we want to do. Giving people the ability to see what's up, no matter where they are, is appealing.
