I recently finished a nice little example of how to use real-time data for an exciting and equally relaxing view:
It shows a list of players and the number of games where it is their turn.
As soon as they make a move, they are moved to the new position with a nice animation.
Interestingly enough, the hardest part was the JQuery/UI animation stuff.
Since it already is based on the components that are soon to become the TURTED project the real time events were already there to be intercepted and used.
So, if you feel stressed, just sit back, relax and watch the squares move – the ZEN of Karopapier
