The client implements version 1 of DDP, as well as fallbacks to pre1 and pre2.
$ npm install ddp-client
Built-in authentication support was removed in ddp 0.7.0 due to changes in Meteor version 0.8.2.
One can authenticate using plain-text logins as follows:
// logging in with e-mailddpclient;// logging in with usernameddpclient;
var DDPClient = ;// or "ddp-client/promise" for promisified versions of all async functionsvar ddpclient =// All properties optional, defaults shownhost : "localhost"port : 3000ssl : falseautoReconnect : trueautoReconnectTimer : 500maintainCollections : trueddpVersion : '1' // ['1', 'pre2', 'pre1'] available// Use a full url instead of a set of `host`, `port` and `ssl`url: 'wss://example.com/websocket'socketConstructor: WebSocket // Another constructor to create new WebSockets;/** Connect to the Meteor Server*/ddpclient;/** Useful for debugging and learning the ddp protocol*/ddpclient;/** Close the ddp connection.

The node DDP client does not implement ordered collections, something that while in the DDP spec has not been implemented in Meteor yet.
