Simple pub/sub messaging for the web

What is it?

Faye is a publish-subscribe messaging system based on the Bayeux protocol. It provides message servers for Node.js and Ruby, and clients for use on the server and in all major web browsers.

Who uses it?

1. Start a server

var http = require('http'),
    faye = require('faye');

var server = http.createServer(),
    bayeux = new faye.NodeAdapter({mount: '/'});


2. Create a client

var client = new Faye.Client('http://localhost:8000/');

client.subscribe('/messages', function(message) {
  alert('Got a message: ' + message.text);

3. Send messages

client.publish('/messages', {
  text: 'Hello world'
