Can Rails 5+ be used as real-time backend for non-web applications?

Hello. I have been watching how people working on this framework for two weeks. I’ve never seen that so much people from all around the world trying to make Rails better.

What I have found out, that most work is going on ActionCable. According to pull requests of this repository and blogs of developers, it will add ability to create full-duplex connections between clients and server by using WebSockets. This will allow to create real-time applications.

However, I 've only seen examples which allow to create real-time chat applications and you need to use coffee script in client side, that is . If I want to create Mobile application that wants to connect to Rails via ActionCable, is it even possible?
