in our app we are planing to integrate a realtime chat function for our users. (Simple chat for single users to users or inside a group)
Of course just using requests isn't a very cool option for this, so we are thinking about possibles to use node.js (for example) to realize this.
Does anyone around had done this before and could share some thoughts/experience? What do you guys thinking is the best way to achieve this?

Several folks developing apps on Kinvey that required chat or other realtime communication used the Google Channel API along with our Google App Engine integration. More on this: https://developers.google.com/appengine/docs/python/channel/
