README

Centrifugo is a real-time messaging server. It can be used in conjunction with your application backend written in any language - Python, Ruby, Perl, PHP, Javascript, Java, Objective-C etc.

In a nutshell this is a server running near your application and keeping lots of persistent Websocket or SockJS connections from your application clients (from web browsers or other environments like iOS or Android apps). When some event happens you can broadcast it to all interested clients using Centrifugo API.

Read documentation to get details. You can also find this introduction post interesting – this is a story behind Centrifugo.

Releases available as single executable files – just download latest release for your platform, unpack and run.

See official Docker image.

There are also packages for 64-bit Debian, Centos and Ubuntu.

Try demo instance on Heroku (password demo). Or deploy your own Centrifugo instance in one click:
