api.gopherholesunlimited.com, you can’t use a base path to your WebSocket (

This wraps up our collection on WebSockets. There may be yet another put up approaching the way to implement WebSockets into your software to go from long-running synchronous endpoints to fluid, async workflows with standing updates.
I hope you’ve loved studying about WebSockets and have had as a lot enjoyable as I’ve had writing all this. It was an journey. I hope you’ll be able to get the stack deployed, attempt it out, and even combine it into your software!
