ThreePinJS configuration is based on threepin.json file, placed within the main folder. A configuration file it's composed of 3 main section: server address and port, events to emit and events to listen onto.

Define server address and port to which connect to

"serverUrl" : "http://127.0.0.1",
"serverPort" : 5454,

Define an array of events on wich to listen for

"listen" : [ "eventOn1" , "eventOn2" ],

Define an array of events to emit to the server, each one with its data to send

"emit" : [
{
"name" : "eventEmit1",
"data" : {
"key1-1" : "param1-1",
"key1-2" : "param1-2",
"key1-3" : "param1-3"
}
}
]
 

This is a full example of configuration file

{
"serverUrl" : "http://127.0.0.1",
"serverPort" : 5454,
"listen" : [ "eventOn1" , "eventOn2" ],
"emit" : [
{
"name" : "eventEmit1",
"data" : {
"key1-1" : "param1-1",
"key1-2" : "param1-2",
"key1-3" : "param1-3"
}
},
{
"name" : "eventEmit2",
"data" : {
"key2-1" : "param2-1",
"key2-2" : "param2-2",
"key2-3" : "param2-3"
}
},
{
"name" : "eventEmit3",
"data" : {
"key3-1" : "param3-1",
"key3-2" : "param3-2",
"key3-3" : "param3-3"
}
}
]
}
 
  1. Install ThreepinJS
  2. Fill the configuration file with your events and data
  3. Fire up a local server ( SimpleHTTPServer is awesome for me ) and load the index.html on your favourite browser
  4. Debug and enjoy
