jsonrpc2

JSON-RPC server and client library

node-jsonrpc2

This is a JSON-RPC server and client library for node.js http://nodejs.org/, the V8 based evented IO framework.

To install node-jsonrpc2 in the current directory, run:

npm install jsonrpc2

Firing up an efficient JSON-RPC server becomes extremely simple:

var rpc = require('jsonrpc2');
 
var server = new rpc.Server();
 
function add(argsoptcallback) {
  callback(null, args[0] + args[1]);
}
server.expose('add', add);
 
server.listen(8000, 'localhost');

And creating a client to speak to that server is easy too:

var rpc = require('jsonrpc2');
var sys = require('sys');
 
var client = new rpc.Client(8000, 'localhost');
 
client.call('add', [1, 2], function(errresult) {
    sys.puts('1 + 2 = ' + result);
});

More documentation and development is on its way.
