I created pushJS to send javascript updates to users of any website.

This project should make it very easy to send Javascript to connected user’s browsers.The communication is one way. In the future I would like to get a live feed of who is logged on and what they are doing.

This project has so many uses it’s hard to list them all. I could see a news website pushing the latest breaking news or a shopping website pushing a brand new deal to everyone who is logged in.

It works by using redis as a message q. When a message is pulled off the Q it is sent to the browser via socket.io of the specified user. Very simple

 

Let me know what you think.
