Channels is a simple hosted API for quickly, easily and securely integrating realtime bi-directional functionality via WebSockets to web and mobile apps, or any other Internet connected device.
Channels event based abstraction makes it simple to bind UI interactions to events that are triggered from any client or server.
As well as a WebSockets API, Channels has a HTTP API for publishing your messages. This is ideally suited to web server technologies and Channels has a set of HTTP API libraries in many common languages to help you to do this.
Channels has a simple Publish/Subscribe model that allows you to filter and control how people receive your messages.
