I just discovered this today, but I think it has been out there about a month.

here's a summary from Github
Quote:
What is TogetherJS?

TogetherJS is a service for your website that makes it surprisingly easy to collaborate in real-time.

Using TogetherJS two people can interact on the same page, seeing each other's cursors, edits, and browsing a site together. The TogetherJS service is included by the web site owner, and a web site can customize and configure aspects of TogetherJS's behavior on the site.

For more information and to see TogetherJS in action, visit togetherjs.com


IIUC, I think there are multiple ways to invoke it,... a User can send a private-invite (my interpretation here) to another person to join him. Another possibly is a generally open-invite to multiple simultaneous users. I'll need to spend more time there to learn if that is the way it works.

It is from Mozilla see: https://togetherjs.com/
Quote:
TogetherJS is a free, open source JavaScript library by Mozilla that adds collaboration features and tools to your website. By adding TogetherJS to your site, your users can help each other out on a website in real time!


Let the games begin.

Hi Lars

This is an interesting concept and I can see that there could be real benefits where someone say for example is browsing your website and someone else offers to help the browser find what they were looking for or do what they wanted to do.

It would also be a great use to developers working on a site especially if the developers were remote to each other.

Thinking beyond the square - it possibly could be helpful if say DW were able to log into my Opus development screen and watch what I'm doing when a bug happens. You could let DW have a play to diagnose whatever the cause is. Of course, this remote access is common on networks, but I'm not sure if it is possible over the web. Then again, hackers don't seem to have trouble do they?

I'm not sure TogetherJS is of use to me but I can see that it could be useful to others

Thanks for the heads up there Lars

Graham

Thx Graham.

Good thoughts there. But when you say DW observe and debug, I'm not yet up-to-speed with debugging webpages (Firebug ??). But if that scenario works, then great.

I am designing some workbooks, and even without TogetherJS, the cloud components already have something there to enable sharing of pages, data, and IIRC some form of collaborative input. With the arrival of mozilla's thing, I can foresee having the main User/Reader invite two or three friends to work through some interactive steps.

My head is hurting on this.
