    event-source-emitter

    Server-side events with EventSource.

    Example

    var http        = require('http')
      , eventSource = require('event-source-emitter')
    http.createServer(function(req, res) {
      var es    = eventSource(req, res, {keepAlive: true})
        , times = 0
      var interval = setInterval(function() {
        es.emit("update", {time: Date.now()})
        if (times++ > 10) {
          es.end()
          clearInterval(interval)
        }
      }, 1000)
    }).listen(8765)
    $ curl -v 127.0.0.1:8765
    

    To connect to the EventSource server, use the browser's EventSource interface.

    API

    EventSource(req, res, {keepAlive, onClose})

    • keepAlive - Boolean, default: false. If true, send a comment every 15 seconds to guard against timeouts.
    • onClose - Function, called when the connection is terminated.

    EventSource.emit(event, data)

    Send an event down the event stream.

    EventSource.end()

    Close the connection.

    EventSource.comment(text)

    Send a message down the event stream. It will be ignored by the receiver.
