Has anyone had any success getting “realtime” message passed to the
browser in Rails? I’m wondering if there’s a helper or Prototype
snippet that can help pass messages to a “status” window.
Basically, I have an app that is doing system tasks, like running
command-line scripts and tailing logfiles. I want to show the output in
near-realtime, similar to what a user would see in a command-line
terminal window. Any ideas?
