A couple of weeks ago, we announced our WebRTC SDK, expanding our ever-growing list of PubNub supported SDKs. This API makes incorporating WebRTC into a PubNub enabled app straightforward and simple.
In addition to the new SDK, we introduced a prototype WebRTC demo called PubShare, just one example of what can be done with our new WebRTC API. We now have a full WebRTC file sharing tutorial and demo so you can get a better idea about what goes into a PubNub+WebRTC application.
PubNub Channel Presence allows users to see who is available to share and receive files. Additionally, we use PubNub to send simple signals to alert users when someone is requesting to share a file, and when someone accepts or rejects a share request.
We’ll walk you through all the steps and supply the code to build your own fileshare app using PubNub and WebRTC. Everything you need is available in the full PubShare tutorial and working demo app here.
