Usage

Basic usage:

require "em-eventsource"
EM.run do
  source = EventMachine::EventSource.new("http://example.com/streaming")
  source.message do |message|
    puts "new message #{message}"
  end
  source.start # Start listening
end

Listening specific event name:

source.on "eventname" do |message|
  puts "eventname #{message}"
end

Handle error:

source.error do |error|
  puts "error #{error}"
end

Handle open stream:

source.open do
  puts "opened"
end

Close the stream:

source.close

Current status of the connection:

source.ready_state # Can be EM::EventSource::CLOSED, EM::EventSource::CONNECTING, EM::EventSource::OPEN

Override the default retry value (if the connection is lost):

source.retry = 5 # in seconds (default 3)
