The other day while listening to a Q & A video with Mr. Irvine, he mentioned something to the effect that the network would become faster as it handles more requests, if I’ve got it right.
Simultaneously I’ve been thinking about how to allow a SAFE client app to listen to real-time broadcasted data, similarly as it would in a central server-client paradigm.
MutableData is in effect, perhaps nodes, say in a large chat room, when posting messages in a large chatroom, those messages can be made as entries to the room’s
GET requests are not expensive on SAFE as they normally are on central servers, perhaps clients could simply make perpetual
GET requests to listen for changes to the room’s
I see the limitations of MutableData here:
Maximum entries per MutableData must be 100; Not more than 5 simultaneous mutation requests are allowed for a (MutableData data identifier + type tag) pair;
Could it be as simple as that?
I definitely want to play around with this setup.
