Strange question about canvases


Recommended Posts

Hi @enpu - I mean as a browser app.

Example - someone I know needs a scoring system where there is a timer and 2 windows (separate monitors) and the judges sit by their respective monitor and update their teams score.

As far as I know this is only possible by duplicating the computer screen (2 monitors),  or by stretching a browser window to span more than one monitor (not sure if this works).

There might be other solutions, but I have no idea.

Not really a web developer here, but if we're not talking about a massive amount of data, could you just use the local storage trick? (Both writing/reading to a file to update their display. Old 'early network' trick)

Or Broadcast Channels sounds like something like what you're wanting? Shouldn't need a backend/server for this.
