hmm, server side events? interesting. i've been working on websockets to start with since there seem to be a lot of examples out there i just tried deploying to deploy i think i must have a problem with the port, because i got this error in my browser: Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at ws://localhost:8080/start_web_socket?username=huh. would you say you wouldn't recommend it because there is some kind of problem with websockets on deploy, or because you prefer SSE in general?
