====================

Socket.IO Client Library for .Net

  • NuGet Package: SocketIoClientDotNet

This is the Socket.IO Client Library for C#, which is ported from the JavaScript client version 1.1.0.

See also: EngineIoClientDotNet

Installation

Nuget install:

Install-Package SocketIoClientDotNet

Usage

SocketIoClientDotNet has a similar api to those of the JavaScript client.

using Quobject.SocketIoClientDotNet.Client;

var socket = IO.Socket("http://localhost");
socket.On(Socket.EVENT_CONNECT, () =>
{
	socket.Emit("hi");
	
});

socket.On("hi", (data) =>
	{
		Console.WriteLine(data);
		socket.Disconnect();
	});
Console.ReadLine();

More examples can be found in unit tests acting against the test server.

Features

This library supports all of the features the JS client does, including events, options and upgrading transport.

Framework Versions

.NETFramework v3.5, .NETFramework v4.0, .NETFramework v4.5

N.B.

This library works. There are reports of incidents where it crashes (though I was never able to reproduce them). Use this code in a responsible manner and plan for failures, because Everything fails all the time.
