Ay, Prettyboy. What'd you think about making a "real-time" board (or making [Chat] real-time) with RAL v1.0? I know you said IRC is already a real-time BBS but I think 1.0 was really nice. It made RAL unique compared to the other textboards...
It's a silly question but whatever
probs need a single-page application framework like Angular or some shit, but then it'd lose the 90s charm
The problem with real-time updates is that HTTP is not really meant for transmitting data like that. Real-time updates are only meant for protocols which support always-on connections like SSH, IRC, FTP, etc.
I was talking about using RAL v1.0 for it, guys. I said "real-time" because
Prettyboy referred to 1.0 as real-time. He already has the software for it. Here's a screenshot of v1.0.
Would live board be a more appropriate term?
nobody aside from a few neckbeards runs NoScript
A few neckbeards are marginal... actually you probably don't want them posting anyway.
Not 4, but I don't think relying on JS frameworks and WebSockets is good either. It wastes some unnecessary bandwidth and makes it lose the 90s vibe, as 3 said.
