This is a JSON-RPC server and client library for node.js, 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(args, opt, callback) {
  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');'add', [1, 2], function(err, result) {
    sys.puts('1 + 2 = ' + result);

More documentation and development is on its way.
