Suppose you have an Elm web application, which may be kept open for some time. At various times you may update the application (on the server), and what you would like is for some kind of alert to pop-up on an existing user’s screen to say that there is a new version available, perhaps with a button to refresh the current page.
I think this is relatively standard and was basically wondering what people’s solutions to this are? In particular is there a standard way of doing this that my searching has not found? I suspect there are multiple ways of doing this with various advantages/disadvantages. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Especially interested in anyone with experience of implementing this in Elm, but any thoughts will be appreciated.
