Protocol behind document editor

Post by bergarza » Fri Feb 12, 2021 5:10 am

Hello,

I was wondering what kind of technology /protocol the document editor uses when user collaborating is on (Web Sockets, etc).

This is because of infrastructure purposes, we need to ensure we will not have any communication error when deploying to production due to our firewalls, etc.

Thanks

George

Hello,

The Document Editor can use both Web Sockets and Xhr.

However, we strongly recommend using Web Sockets, since it makes everything work much faster and helps to prevent various issues.

By default Document Editor is configured to use Web Sockets.

In case they are not available, other polling protocols like Xhr will be used.

Best regards,
George
