Wiredset created the protocol to deal with the challenges it faced when building the Trendr API. The team needed a way to offer extremely high-volume API calls with low latency, deliver the results in real-time at scale, and do so through a RESTful interface.
- Fully duplexed streaming connections
- Support for multiple simultaneous streams on a single connection
- Websockets support out of the box
- HTTP Compatibility
In short: you can use this to power a pretty massive API. Anyone know of anything else like this?
