    koa-ws

    Empower your koa.js application with realtime.

    Features

    • Uses jsonrpc 2.0 protocol per default
    • Uses generators as method handlers
    • Simple API to register namespaced methods
    • Connects your sockets to the users session

    Quick start

    Installation

    $ npm install koa-ws
    

    Usage

    Add realtime to your koa app with a couple of lines:

    var koa = require('koa');
    var koaws = require('koa-ws');
    var app = koa();
    
    var options = {
        serveClientFile: true,
        clientFilePath: '/koaws.js',
        heartbeat: true,
        heartbeatInterval: 5000
    };
    
    app.use(koaws(app, options));
    
    app.listen(3000);
    

    Register a simple method on the server:

    app.ws.register('hello', function* () {
        this.result('world!');
    });
    

    Load the client library in the browser with require (var koaws = require('koa-ws/client')) or use the hosted version at /koaws.js.

    Register a method on the client to recieve the session:

    koaws.register('session', function (err, payload) {
        if (err) console.error('Something went wrong', err);
        console.log(payload) // should include our session
    });
    

    Connect to the server:

    koaws.connect();
    

    Call the method from the client:

    koaws.method('hello', function (err, result) {
        if (err) console.error('Something went wrong', err);
        console.log(result) // should log 'world!'
    });
    

    Options

    heartbeat (default: true)

    If server/client should send hearbeats to eachother

    heartbeatInterval (default: 5000)

    How often the heartbeat should be sent

    serveClientFile (default: true)

    Will try and serve the client library file when this.path matches the clientFilePath option.

    clientFilePath (default: /koaws.js)

    Defines the path to match when serving the client library.

    Examples

    Namespaced methods

    Register a namespace:

    app.ws.register('user', {
        create: function* () {
            // create user
        },
        update: function* () {
            // update user
        },
        remove: function* () {
            // remove user
        }
    });
    

    On the client you can then emit:

    • user:create
    • user:update
    • user:remove
