Super Easy Activity Feeds with Stream

height=”546″ class=”aligncenter size-full wp-image-115876″ />

Previously I have written about how to create Activity Feeds in Rails using the public_activity gem. Today, I am going to introduce you to Stream, a platform providing an API to build complex scalable feeds with ease. Together, we will create a demo application and integrate it with Stream.

Stream is free up to 3 million updates per month. It has multi-region support and real-time updates. There are clients for Ruby, Python, Javascript, PHP, Java, C#, Scala, and Go, as well as integrations for the Rails, Django, and Laravel frameworks.

Currently this platform is actively evolving ($1.75 million was raised recently) and you certainly should give it a try.

A working demo is available at sitepoint-stream.herokuapp.com.

The source code for this post can be found on GitHub.
