Basically, I want to have my frontend only communicate through websockets, however, no user really needs to be in the same room nor should they be.
Basically, I was thinking of having it so there would be 1 socket connection for the whole app, and then different pages would use join/leave different channels.
In terms of making channels private, I was thinking of generating a random a random key for the user to use on the frontend, and then using that as the identifier e.g. (“dashboard:ASLKSJNGKJAN”). Is this a good approach?
Or am i going over the top here and could just have them all join the same single channel, and instead of using
broadcast I would just use reply or push - if so is this safe? E.g. no other users could intercept other users messages?
