We have built a websocket-based app, “Oncoscape”
Somewhat unusually, but quite successfully, we use R on the server. Simple 4-field JSON messages flow between tabs in the browser, and to
the server as well.
We now wish to scale up, and to support (among other things) Jupyter notebook connections to browser and server. Crossbar looks like a fine
solution. Which leadis me to my question:
Can we use autobahn and WAMP “one level down” – that is, rather then RPC or pub/sub, we simple send JSON over plain websockets,
a) benefiting from WAMP infrastructure, and from the crossbar router
In spirt, this would be like embedding a little bit of assembly code in a C program, or calling out to C from with an R package.
Is it possible to get the best of both worlds?
