Pusher is a simple hosted API for quickly, easily and securely adding realtime bi-directional functionality via WebSockets to web and mobile apps, or any other Internet connected device.
Our event based abstraction makes it simple to bind UI interactions to events that are triggered from any client or server.
As well as a WebSockets API, we have a REST API for publishing your messages. This is ideally suited to web server technologies and we have a set of REST API libraries in many common languages to help you to do this.
We have a simple Publish/Subscribe model based on channels that allows you to filter and control how people receive your messages.
We supply functionality such as authentication mechanisms for private channels, and presence functionality for keeping track of who's online.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
