Enable socket for realtime query

I’m wondering if you guys handle realtime data change in the viewer setup (I know that you have multiplayer comming but I’m talking about front-end interface). Let’s say that we have two person at the same time using this integration:

I want that if someone add a car, the other guy in the same dashboard will se it appear on the table in realtime. I tried to search for retool with socket.io integration or to use realtime database such as firestorm but it seems every time I add a car, it’s only triggering the table in the current tab.

Sorry if it’s not clear, I hope you can help


@Felix_Lepage I'm sorry but we're not supporting realtime queries at the moment. It is something we're thinking hard about though. Maybe something will come next year!

It's possible if you roll your own, but not out of the box.
I've done it with socket io and a postgres database using a lambda function. A backend was needed because I needed private channels and presence channels. Not code I'm allowed to share though.
Messy but it's achievable and I believe others have also had similar success - there was a guide to a simple implementation posted by someone
