WebRTC with xRTML

Web Real Time Communication, WebRTC for short, enables web browsers applications for audio/video calling, through simple JavaScript APIs, without having to resort to plugins (Flash) which was the only way, up until the advent of HTML5, of enabling communication via video and audio over the web.

Realtime® A Big Solution for Big Data

"Big data" is a buzzword that has been getting louder over the past few months and all the IT companies are striving to get their piece of action in this new and exciting trend.

While reading through my daily stream of Tweets, which is more like a daily flood (What can I say? I love to see what people talk about), I came across with a link to a W3 article, entitled “Standards for Web Applications on Mobile: current state and roadmap,”.

xRTML Templating Part II

In the first part of the templating blog post, I’ve shown the concepts of the xRTML.Templating module, as well as a simple example of how to use it.

Like I said, we still need to understand how xRTML interacts with the templating mechanism. To demonstrate that interaction I will show you a simple example using an xRTML Connection that receives messages and updates an application model that will also be defined by me.

xRTML Templating Part I

With xRTML we have access to real time information, and, in order to display that information simple and clean, we needed to create a responsive and easy to use template engine that reflect that information.

See what's coming next with xRTML 3.0

A little over a year ago, we started working on xRTML as a full-fledged product and platform for developers to work with. Our goal was to provide the tools for everyone to start building Realtime-enabled websites and applications fast and easily. The framework grew and what was just a few html-like tags and JavaScript library soon saw its .Net, PHP, Java, Android, iOS, Windows Phone, ActionScript, Node.js and Silverlight counterparts coming to life.
