#CRUDr - Persistant connection storage for everyone


  • Websockets are becoming increasingly popular

  • Users expect realtime updates on their services

  • Building a websocket service from scratch is hard

  • Relying on third-party services feels unnecessarily limiting

Things don't have to be that way...
