dgram-browserify

dgram module for the browser thru a proxy based on socket.io

Kind of udp support for the browser : replace the dgram module. Behind the scene, a socket.io/udp proxy makes this possible.

dgram-browserify is a wrapper around simudp for automatic browserify support.

Be careful, for the moment, the main browserify version provides a broken implementation of Buffer. That's why this version should be used..

$ npm install dgram-browserify

Server-side, the proxy server should be launched :

var server = require('http').createServer();
 
require('dgram-browserify').listen(server);
 
server.listen(8080);

Note : see listen options

Browser-side with browserify :

var dgram = require('dgram');
 
//be sure Buffer is present 
var Buffer = require('buffer').Buffer;
 
var socket = dgram.createSocket('udp4');
 
var hello = new Buffer('hello');
socket.send(hello, 0, hello.length, 3000, 'anywhere.com');
 
socket.on('message', function(bufrinfo) {
  //... 
});
 
//you've understood, it's dgram for the browser...
