CometChat Transports (APE, PusherApp and BeaconPush)
Few lines of coding, but expensive like the whole SocialEngine

First of all, can you believe this tiny folder (around 10KB) is $200? :whew: This is ridiculous. :( They should be free.

What are you talking about ?

That's right, read here (Quoted text below).

CometService does not seem right for me. But I still want to offload work. Do you offer any alternatives?

Yes, we do offer 3 alternatives. All 3 alternatives offer the same functionality as CometService:

  • Self-hosted APE server
  • BeaconPush
  • PusherApp
We charge a one-time fee of $199 to use any of the above 3 alternatives. Purchase a transport or contact us for more information.


What are CometChat transports ?

CometChat transports can be used in the following two cases...

  • You would like faster delivery of messages
  • Your existing server is unable to handle the load due to CometChat (either due to poorly configured server or increase in number of simultaneous users)
The Fact !

Their CometService is $9/month (lowest package), but if we refused it and wanted to use another third party transport (in any case), it is becomes $199 and just for 9KB coding? It's almost 2/3 of whole complex SocialEngine's price! It seems that CometChat trying collect the money they gonna lose by user's third party transport usage. It will be fair if it was under 10$ or completely free, as it should be.

Hi guys. I am new.
Sorry If I reup this thread. My friend just bought comechat and when I see that they want we paid for unidentified ape transport something I was wonderwing what It could be.
Well, this topic answers to my question.
As much as I understand it is a simple configuration file (I think only the comet file is really needed?) that would overrided the existed ones.
I download the ape files in the first reply and they are pretty different from the actual one. In the new one, there are a parameter (ORIGIN) that *probably* link to their services (an "url" string). Maybe if I change that like with the link of my ape server (like localhost or something, I do not research yet), probably it works or there are other things I have to look for?

Regards and thanks for the help.

Agundabbo.

edb, you want to say that third party configuration files for APE Server that sell Cometchat for $99, don't work?
