Real Time AngularJS Application


I want to build a very simple AngularJS single-page app to show a list of users, add a new user and delete!

But want it to be combined with the HTML5 webscoket and a real time syncing between opened tabs.

Any easy and direct-to-the-point suggestions, would be highly appreciated.

Angular has built in $http and $resource are responsible for communicating with a server via HTTP protocols. You are right about you will use websocket to have a realtime sync.

You might will use https://github.com/btford/angular-socket-io with Angular. In this case you will have an Angular app, running in your browser and an API, running on your server which handles and sync the websocket events between the 2 opened tab.
