What is SignalR?
According to Wikipedia: ASP.NET SignalR is a library for ASP.NET developers to add real-time web functionality to their applications.
SignalR is a framework for building asynchronous applications. “R” stand for “Real Time”. SignalR is a realtime communication framework built on top of the WebSoket specification.
It does fallback to classic HTTP when websockets are not supported by client or server. SignalR is stateless by design and it’s not aware of ASP.NET user session.
