PubNub vs Entity Signal: What are the differences?

What is PubNub? Build real-time apps quickly and scale them globally. PubNub makes it easy for you to add real-time capabilities to your apps, without worrying about the infrastructure. Build apps that allow your users to engage in real-time across mobile, browser, desktop and server.

What is Entity Signal? A real time connection to entity framework core through Signalr Core. It allows you to connect to Entity Framework through SignalR and get updates on subscribed data in real time. This lowers the number of refreshes done by the user and ultimately allows you to do more with fewer servers.

PubNub and Entity Signal can be primarily classified as "Realtime Backend / API" tools.

Entity Signal is an open source tool with 153 GitHub stars and 9 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Entity Signal's open source repository on GitHub.

        What are some alternatives to Entity Signal and PubNub?
        Firebase
        Firebase is a cloud service designed to power real-time, collaborative applications. Simply add the Firebase library to your application to gain access to a shared data structure; any changes you make to that data are automatically synchronized with the Firebase cloud and with other clients within milliseconds.
        Socket.IO
        It enables real-time bidirectional event-based communication. It works on every platform, browser or device, focusing equally on reliability and speed.
        Pusher
        Pusher is the category leader in delightful APIs for app developers building communication and collaboration features.
        SignalR
        SignalR allows bi-directional communication between server and client. Servers can now push content to connected clients instantly as it becomes available. SignalR supports Web Sockets, and falls back to other compatible techniques for older browsers. SignalR includes APIs for connection management (for instance, connect and disconnect events), grouping connections, and authorization.
        Google Cloud Pub/Sub
        Cloud Pub/Sub is a fully-managed real-time messaging service that allows you to send and receive messages between independent applications. You can leverage Cloud Pub/Sub’s flexibility to decouple systems and components hosted on Google Cloud Platform or elsewhere on the Internet.
