So I’m programming an Internet forum, right? You can see a live demo here, if you’re curious: https://agora-2866.nodechef.com/forum
My problem comes when I want to manage subscriptions for transferring data from the server to the client. Right now, I just have one big subscription for transferring the listing of all posts in the forum to the client, but once the thing starts seeing heavy use that’s not going to work. So I’m going to need to set up some kind of a dynamic subscription model, I think? I’m not sure what factors I should take into account. The simplest way would be to just subscribe to a selection of posts to start with, say the newest 100, or whatever, and then allow users to load more from there, and just have an extra single subscription for each post after that. I’m not sure if thats a good idea though? Please advise.
