Raw Socket API SHIM

Saw Rocket

Raw Socket API SHIM for Chrome Packaged Apps and Mozilla Open Web Apps (Firefox OS).

  • TCP client sockets only
  • UDP client sockets in chrome only
  • Binary data only

Copy sawrocket.js to your project and start using TCPSocket or UDPSocket.

If you need to convert to strings, copy utf8.js and use UTF8ArrToStr and strToUTF8Arr. They've been stolen from the Mozilla Developer Docs.

A sample netcat demo app is included. Use:

  • manifest.json for Chrome
  • manifest.webapp for Firefox OS
