(Ruby) Firebase Receive Server-Sent Events (text/event-stream)

Demonstrates how to start receiving server-sent events and update your JSON database with each event.

Important: A problem in reading the response text/event-stream was found and fixed after the release of Chilkat v9.5.0.69. This example is valid for Chilkat v9.5.0.70 and greater. (At the time of this writing, which is 18-Sep-2017, Chilkat v9.5.0.70 is not yet released. A .70 pre-release can be obtained by sending a request to support@chilkatsoft.com.)
