I am starting an app that will have a chat component, and really interested in Redwood, but wonder how much I can hook into things for realtime messaging.
above mentions polling but I’m wondering how to provide long-polling, eg streaming to an http connection, rather than just continually hitting the server? Can I provide endpoints that are plain express like endpoints in a redwood app?
Using redwood can I use graphQL subscriptions?
Apollo supports it and as ex-meteor guys they really did this well imho. Wonder how that works with current redwood setup.
Can I add non-redwood API endpoints? I assume could i connect on the server side directly to postgres and make my own client/server socket feature?
How tied is redwood to serverless?
If i just want to deploy on my own infra, to avoid all the problems with sockets on lambda, is that going to be swimming upstream?
I could not find anything on the deploy docs about running redwood on my own more bare-metal server.
Sorry if some of these are basic questions, I’m experienced with realtime apps but not with redwood much yet.
