What is SignalR?
Who uses SignalR?
Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose SignalR in their tech stack.
Which option do you prefer to go with (considering scalability, and a limited budget):
Technologies in use: Angular / .NET Core 6
What do we want to achieve?
We want to create simple near-time web notifications, those notifications can be categorized into 2 sections:
User notification: which represents user activities and engagements.
System notification e.g release notes and maintenance time. The notification object is too simple just a title, body, userId, notificationStatus, and readAt. notification status is an enum with 3 values: unread, menuOpened, Read.
use Firebase Realtime Database for user notifications and Microsoft SQL Server for system notifications (maybe using long poling or so to frequently call the getSystemNotification API ).
use SignalR to push new notifications along with the SqlServer database and store both user and system into one table (as they almost have the same attributes)
I'm working on a project where I need to both send real-time updates for specific data sets, along with providing notifications to the users after long-running processes have been completed (SSE).
The project is using .NET Framework, AngularJS, & MSSQL. I understand that SignalR is nice as a polyfill for .NET and you can scale with a backplane, but I was wondering if there was a more efficient/effective technology for this?
SignalR or gRPC are always sending and receiving data on the client-side (from browser to .exe and back to browser). And web application is used for graphical visualization of data to the user. There is no need for local .exe to send or interact with remote web API. Which architecture or framework do you suggest to use in this case?
