CloudSplit - Real-time Cloud Analytics. Real-time spending insig Beaconpush - push service for creating real-time web apps using HTML5 WebSockets and Comet vs RSSCloud Editor’s note: With all of the debate lately between RSSCloud versus PubSubHubbub, we wanted to hear from a developer who could actually tell us which one might be better and why. The following guest post is written by Josh Fraser, the co-founder of EventVue, who is an active contributor to PubSubHubbub in his free time. He has contributed several client libraries for PubSubHubbub including a WordPress plugin. Guess which side of the debate he falls on. In the past few months, a lot of attention has been given to the rise of the real-time web. Both PuSH and rssCloud address a fundamental flaw in the way web applications work today. Dave Winer deserves the credit for coming up with the idea long before anyone else. But if you find yourself confused about how they are different, you’re not alone. Conceptually, both protocols are very similar. The subtle differences in implementation are important to understand, however. Third, PuSH has a more friendly policy for handling unsubscribes.
