I’m working on a realtime notification system for Yii. The base concept is that we are sending a message from Yii (using predis, and redis’ publish feature), while we are running a node.js app where socket.io clients can subscribe to redis messages.
This extension will be a fully featured realtime notification system, but currently, this is only a tech demo, as many function are not implemented.
You can find the source on github: https://github.com/voidcontext/yii-vNotifer
And I wrote a simple demo app: https://github.com/voidcontext/yii-vNotifer-demo
Later, when the extension will reach the beta stage, I will set up the demo app on a server.
Any comments, questions, and criticism is much appreciated.
