I have some functionality that needs to guarantee messages that I am using sockets to update the UI.
In the event sockets fail, I want to fallback to polling just to make sure I am retrieving the items from my API.
During testing, I have (embarrassingly) used
$interval but know this is not sustainable, so I am looking into web workers.
If I am using Crosswalk and the updates iOS browser (not sure if there even is one at this point), is it safe for me to implement web workers to run this polling? I am aware that I can’t access many things in the web workers, but I would just need to pass data back to ionic context so that it can be handled accordingly.
