Update the index view ajax

Dear rails mailing list,

First a big thank you to everyone for you past, present an future
help… learned a lot fro here.

I saw some relater threads on this but I need some more direct answers.

I generated with scaffold an object which has multiple attributes. Some
of those attributes in the database get dynamically updated in the
background in the background by some external scripts/delayed jobs etc.

How can I get the index view to dynamically update those attributes
withought getting the user to manually refresh the web page?

Merci,

Julien

Use Faye. http://faye.jcoglan.com/

Thanks Dheeraj but I don’t think this is what im looking for as my app
runs on heroku. I was hoping there would be a gem that solves this
problem

One solution, probably the easiest, is to use javascript to
periodically request a page refresh (probably via AJAX).

You can run Faye on Heroku.

If you don’t want to use it, try PusherApp. If you don’t want to use
that either, poll periodically with AJAX.

You might want to keep your eye out for Rails 4, in particular for what
