[[service]] is a BAAS with a complete client framework. Developers can build real-time applications and communication services and deploy them easily. Here are some examples :
- audio and video conference apps
- collaborative apps
- data exchange for IoT
- multiplayer games ...
- data repositories like address book or user preferences
Quickstart Get started in minutes. Read and send data in realtime with [[service]]. Discover how [[service]] is really easy to use.
Data Sync framework This is the core of [[service]]. These API enable to store and to synchonise data between multiple devices instantaneously. The backend is offered "as a service". Thus most of the time you don't need to install any server.
Reach SDK Client framework relying on the [[service]] SDK to add communication features on your website (chat, audio/video call, conferences, presence). You can customize/enrich it if necessary.
Use cases A demonstration of a communication service based on [[service]] Framework. Create your own account and use tchat, audio & video calls and conferences, presence. You can also use the code of this demo as a sample of [[service]] usage
Chosen concept is "Backend-as-a-service".
Basically, [[service]] is:
- a high level datastore
- with a tree data structure (tree nodes store strings, numbers, booleans, or nested children)
- with flexible pubsub available on any node of the tree
- with a document describing "security rules"
Data synchronisation between multiple devices, data storage
One unified real-time backend for every kind of services:
- communication services: presence, chat, audio & vidéo call & conference, message publication…
- collaboratives apps: photo or document sharing, live sketching, location sharing...
- Internet of Things: data exchange between multiple devices, sensors and apps, at home or everywhere
Usable for Web apps and native apps
Backend as a Service: each service project has its own data space and use API on Internet
Service logic is mainly on the client side: low impact on network when a service is deployed or upgraded
Natively adapted for
- data persistency: activity log, chat history, call log, address book…
- group communication: multi-device data exchange, group chat, audio/video conferencing between multiple accounts/users or between multiple devices of a same account/user
Based on Web technologies
- NAT/proxy/firewall traversal: where HTTPS can pass, [[service]] access will be available
Based on scalable middleware (NoSQL database)
