Learning about Server Sent Events to (as suggested) send events from a server to a client.

Sure, I could just use websockets, but there are some benefits to using SSE.

First - they're unidirectional, events only flow from the server to the client. This could reduce the attack surface of your application.

Second - they're built right on top of HTTP, meaning you get the benefits of same-origin policies, and I believe can forward cookies / auth along easily for client-specific messaging.

After struggling with Firebase for a Next.js project, I moved over to  @prisma, @PostgreSQL, + @nextauthjs for database and user authentication. Way easier to implement than I thought and the docs for Prisma and Next-Auth are pretty great.  I definitely am using this combo again for future projects!
