When using rhyolite your frontend can “listen” on some time-varying data stored in postgres on the backend. Rhyolite uses websocket for the communication between frontend and backend, as well as PostgreSQL NOTIFY/LISTEN for communicating updates from the database.
Your app will define a
ViewSelector that the frontend will use to define what kind of data it needs to render its view. The rhyolite backend will in response push the resultant
View down the websocket which gets reflected in a
Dynamic in the frontend.
