*This is a 15-minute Lightning Talk*
In this talk, we’ll cover building a WordPress site that leverages the power of Express.js and WebSockets to enable things like live publishing, commenting, and alerting users when content is being edited. We’ll build a simple Express app to handle POST requests from a WordPress site and turn them into events emitted to users, and build REST API endpoints to handle data from users. We’ll also talk about integrating something like this into a production site.
Writing a node.js application with Express and Socket.io to send content to users in real-time
Writing a plugin to send data to an external app through webhooks
Extending the WordPress dashboard
