Notification, push, real-time, reload


Do you think it’s possible to reload a page based on a change in the source database (without using Make)?

In concrete terms, if my users stay on the request arrival page, they currently have no way of knowing whether requests have arrived in the meantime.

This could also be used to display a notification system showing the number of pending requests.

Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance :slight_smile:

I already did it with a custom code in Softr. One event listener makes it possible (That I won’t reveal for the reasons below).

Actually, with the recent updates, I don’t know if it still works.

Problem is: it needs to be very well set up in order to not crash your app or to not ruin the UX (a real time data feature makes all users updates visible in real time to all other users, if not well set up)

The best way is to wait other databases that enable real time data. Safest way, Cleanest way.

This is exactly what I point out at the end of my in-app notifications guide => other coming datasources should allow this behaviour (specifically Supabase).

Hi Matthieu,

Ho yeah ok thanks.
I’ll check out what you’ve done on your guide. :+1:
