Our use case
We are using Retool as a configuration tool and an admin panel for our backend. Our app relies on real-time technologies quite a lot, so some of the data we’d like to show in Retool is often updated either by the backend itself or by other people who are using Retool at the same time.
Current state of support for real-time technologies
Polling from Redis or other database might be a viable alternative, but there are values which are updated very frequently and we would have to set the polling interval to a very low value in order to get accurate data.
Feature request: support for Redis Pub/Sub or
Since Redis is used as a fast real-time store in many applications (including ours), we would like to have the possibility to get updates from it in real time using the
WATCH command or, as a more powerful and flexible alternative, the publish-subscribe mechanism. Preferably this should be available as API in custom JS and queries, but there might be other, better ways to expose this.
Thanks in advance. Kind regards
