Hi, I’m currently experimenting with creating a game on Phoenix.
I have a front-end using Unity that currently sends GET and POST requests to the server to retrieve and send updates on the current game environment and game state, but I am looking to use channels for more real-time functionality.
I have been searching online for ways to implement channels in the way I want to use it, but most of it utilize a web front-end to send messages.
Is there a way to use channels just to send and receive json messages without creating a web front-end?
If so, can anyone help point me in the right direction to do so?
If not, are there any other alternatives that I can look into?
Otherwise, is repeatedly sending GET requests to the server from the front-end application a reliable method to consistently update the game state and environment?
Thanks everyone for your help.
