What's OT?

why doesn't google docs use DS? Who uses DS?

What's the best choice of making something similar to google docs' co-edit feature?




I found this page informative and interesting

https://operational-transformation.github.io/visualization.h...

it has a live visualization of the OT algorithm


The live visualization was a lot of fun to play around with.


WRT "What's OT?": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operational_transformation

The wiki article includes information that should answer your last question as well.
