WebSockets Support

Would there potentially be WebSockets or Socket.io support so that I can add faster bidirectional API requests for potentially chat apps or live games.

Hello, no there is no support for WebSockets at the moment.
Do you have a ready backend that uses WebSockets? We can implement a plugin that enables WebSockets in one of our next releases.

Yes my current backend uses Socket.io and I would really love it if I could use my current backend without any modification.

I just checked and there is a Swift library GitHub - socketio/socket.io-client-swift so we are going to implement it in our next version in the next weeks.
