Braid: Synchronization for HTTP

🔒 braid.news

This looks really interesting. Synchronization is a huge pain to write, and rewrite, all the time.

The Braid Protocol is a set of extensions to HTTP, which transform it from a state transfer protocol into a state synchronization protocol. When a resource is changed by one client or server, all other clients and servers update. Braid supports Operational Transform and CRDTs at web URLs, enabling peer-to-peer, offline-capable web applications.

It would be pretty amazing if Braid became as well-supported as REST.
