SignalR and LiveChat Starter Kit Part 3: Visitor Experience

21 Nov 2012

Please note that this video was using the first beta version of SignalR, lots of things changes since that day.

The version 1.5 of LCSK was not doing a bad job in terms of presenting a relatively interesting experience to the end user (visitor). I’ve started from the same JavaScript file of that version and simply changed the part where I was using continuous polling for new messages and adding new message for SignalR server call and client callback.

In almost a weekend I was able to craft a not so terrible live support solution using SignalR. If you did not try it so far I highly encourage you to check it out. Despite the fact that lots of SignalR demos are related to chat, the possibility are just incredible and even for “non-sexy” line of business data-entry apps.

I’ve published an early alpha preview of the version 2 so you can play with the code and see for yourself how amazing SignalR is.
