Redis socket.io wrapper
Attempt to write a module that wraps Redis Pub/Sub around socket.io to emit messages to more than one node.js instance
npm install red-socket
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:JeromeParadis/red-socket.git
See Chat Example
var io = require('socket.io').listen(80), RedSocket = require('red-socket'); var rsr = RedSocket(io,options);
Then, you can use:
to wrap your socket code. Then, to wrap calls through pub-sub and dispatch to all sockets, you can use:
As a convenience, red-socket defines an helper to manage redis sets. Can be useful to use as a datastore instead of using a local array that wouldn't be shared between instances.
All methods can support a facultative callback with a boolean parameter that returns success or failure except for get_members that returns an array of the set members.
var nicknames = new rsr.Sets("nicknames");
nicknames.add(value,unique,callback) // Add a value to the set
unique is a boolean
nickname.delete(value,callback) // Delete a value from the set nickname.delete_set() // Destroy the set nickname.get_members(callback)
- Redis Sets store: add volatility and/or keep track per process and delete on process lost
- ... maybe some kind of process ping to keep sets active?
- Add haproxy chat example to show multiple process running
- Add tests
- Add benchmarks
- Clean up code using async
- Use at your own risk
