There seems to be several technologies to realize this push or polling.
Is what you explained feasible on the user's side of happstack-server (I
mean, if I can do it myself)?
If I take an empty MVar in my ServerPartTs, which are read over client's
I think that nothing will be sent back to the browser and it will remain
Is that to be combined with an HTTP refresh timer on the client side?
By sessions, you mean sessions that I create myself for every client
