EpiServer and SignalR for pushing data to pages.


I'm aware EpiServer uses websockets via SignalR already (for the CMS Editor), and I was wondering if SignalR can also be used push data to the front end for any pages that require it? We've a client asking for a quote but we've not implemented websockets and EpiServer before. Any known problems/issues that may cause us troubles? Is it possible? Are there preferred alternatives to signalR? We could probably use Ajax Requests to achieve almost the same result but being able to "push" data on events will be a better implementation.

Yes it can be used, the hub that pushes the data is just reading it from a data source so you can use standard Episerver code to expose whatever you want pushing out
