Use pull-streams to make server sent events wonderful.
pull-sse module is designed to be used as both pull sink and source
but at this stage, only the sink has been implemented.
var http = ;var server = http;var pull = ;var sse = ;server;server;
This could then be consumed in the browser, very simply:
var source = '/values';source;
For more examples, I'd recommend trawling through the examples.
