This package has been deprecated

Author message:

This module has moved and is now available at @hapi/nes. Please update your dependencies as this version is no longer maintained an may contain bugs and security issues.

nes

10.0.2 • Public • Published

nes adds native WebSocket support to hapi-based application servers. Instead of treating the WebSocket connections as a separate platform with its own security and application context, nes builds on top of the existing hapi architecture to provide a flexible and organic extension.

Protocol version: 2.4.x (different from module version)

Build Status

Lead Maintainer - Matt Harrison

API

The full client and server API is available in the API documentation.

Protocol

The nes protocol is described in the Protocol documentation.

Browser Client

When you require('nes') it loads the full module and adds a lot of extra code that is not needed for the browser. The browser will only need the nes client. If you are using CommonJS you can load the client with require('nes/client').

Install

npm i nes
