Few lines of coding, but expensive like the whole SocialEngine
First of all, can you believe this tiny folder (around 10KB) is $200? 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:
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.
- Self-hosted APE server
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)
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.
