Looking for advice on Websockets and Rails


After some hours googling for that, I try here.

I want to stream files (upload and dowload) and sounds via Rails and websockets.

What’s the best way to do that in rails? Which tools do you recommend ?

I read that em-websocket, websocket-rails, socket.io, meteor project … What’s the difference among those ? Websocket seems to change very fast, what’s the current best practice ?

Thanks !


try Volt, it seems suitable for your purposes, since its connectin already relies on websockets.


Thanks, I’ll look into volt, seems promising.
