Action Cable and WebSockets: Ruby on Rails 5 New Features

Get an overview of ActionCable, an important new feature in Ruby on Rails 5. ActionCable is a framework for working with WebSockets. It allows real-time, full duplex communications between a server and client. It is ideal for streaming video, interactive content such as online games, and for real-time chat applications. It requires a constant connection between the server and client, but is faster and requires less data overhead once a connection is created.
