Pushpin vs Simperium: What are the differences?

What is Pushpin? Reverse proxy for realtime web services. Pushpin is a reverse proxy server that makes it easy to build realtime web services. The project is unique among realtime push solutions in that it is designed to address the needs of API creators.

What is Simperium? Move data everywhere it's needed, instantly and automatically. Simperium is a new kind of data layer. As your app reads and writes data, Simperium circulates that data everywhere it's needed. You add a Simperium library to your app and initialize it. This library keeps a persistent connection to the Simperium hosted service. The Simperium libraries and service work together to efficiently move data around for your users.

Pushpin and Simperium belong to "Realtime Backend / API" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Pushpin are:

  • Supports HTTP streaming, HTTP long-polling, and WebSockets.
  • Clients communicate using your API contract. Pushpin is a server-side implementation detail.
  • Since Pushpin is a proxy server, the backend can be written in any language.

On the other hand, Simperium provides the following key features:

  • Data transparently moves across mobile, web, and desktop versions of your app
  • Your users can read and write data even when they're offline
  • Multiple users can collaborate with the same data at the same time
