    CI Inline docs Coverage Status

    // server.js
    const { Server } = require('ezrpc')
    const server = new Server(1250) // run rpc server on port 1250
     
    function helloWorld () {
      console.log('Hello World!')
    }
     
    // Make helloWorld accessible by the remote client
    server.module.exports = {
      helloWorld
    }
    // client.js
    const { Client } = require('ezrpc')
    const { helloWorld } = new Client('localhost', 1250).methods
     
    helloWorld()
      .then(() => console.log('helloWorld() was called on server process'))

    Installing

    $ npm install ezrpc

    $ yarn add ezrpc

    Why?

    • Easily load-balance tasks among multiple processes on multiple machines
    • Can be used like a child process, but does not have to be spawned on every function call
    • ezrpc servers can be used in almost any language

    Docs

    The wiki will help you get started with ezrpc

    Additionally you can generate html documentation of all all method & properties using jsdoc using the doc script:

    $ npm run doc

    $ yarn doc

    Documentation will appear in /jsdoc

    Tests

    Tests are not included when you download from npm; clone the GitHub repository to run tests.

    $ npm test

    yarn

    $ yarn install
    $ yarn test

    Examples

    Some basic explanatory examples can be found here. They currently include a simple master-child example where the master (client.js) calls methods on the child process (server.js), and an example where the LoadBalancer class is used to distribute calls among multiple servers.
