    var URL = require('websocket-url')
    var url = URL.parse('ws://websocket.org/echo?test')
    // url = { 
    //         host:     'websocket.org', 
    //         port:     '80', 
    //         resource: '/echo?test', 
    //         secure:   false 
    //       } 

The parse function throws an error in the following situations

  • the url string is not an absolute URL
  • the scheme is not "ws" or "wss"
