At Threads Styling they were faced with such a prospect when planning their Social Story builder. Having worked with CMSs in the past, they knew the pain of managing document locks with all their edge cases. They also knew that eventually the use case will arise to concurrently edit the document, and if you haven’t planned for it, it is a monumental task.
By treating the document as a stream of JSON patch changes from the very beginning, they were able to offer real-time collaborative editing with conflict resolution smoothly handled by an Operational Transformation algorithm. In this talk, Jason will build a simple, but working example of a shared document using our open source library.
