Ably is a provider of real-time data delivery solutions that support the creation, delivery, and management of complex projects. The Ably API facilitates communication between the Ably service and a variety of client and server devices. The RESTful API is designed for use in servers that form part of the back-end of any given application, like a web application, that implement messaging concepts. The functional scope of the Ably REST API spans the authentication, message publication and message history retrieval as well as presence state and presence retrieval and application usage data retrieval. The API returns responses in mainly JSON format, although JSONP and HTML formats are also acceptable.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
