As INK starts to move from a proof-of-concept prototype to a production system, we’re continually making changes to make its functionality relevant, usable and demonstratively useful.
Recently, our focus has been improving the user experience around waiting for processing. We wanted users to be aware of what is going on while files are processing in a clear manner. To that end, we’ve used the Slanger library, which is an open-source implementation of Pusher. Other clients for INK (such as Editoria) can also receive Slanger events in order to provide users with a richer, more responsive software experience. We hope you enjoy!
