engine.io-stream

build status NPM version Davis Dependency status

simple interface to engine.io via node streams

The API is pretty much the same as shoe

Example Client

var engine = require("engine.io-stream/client")

// attach to an engine.io server at url '/numbers'
var stream = engine("/numbers")

stream.on('data', function(data) {
    console.log(data)
    stream.write('ack')
})

Example Server

var http = require("http")
var EngineServer = require("engine.io-stream")

// engines need to attach to server instances (see below)
var server = http.createServer(...)

var engine = EngineServer(function(stream) {
    // send back some numbers, you know...for fun
    var iv = setInterval(function () {
        stream.write(String(Math.floor(Math.random() * 2)))
    }, 250)

    stream.once("end", function () {
        clearInterval(iv)
    })

    stream.pipe(process.stdout, { end : false })
})

// expose the engine instance at this url
engine.attach(server, "/numbers")

server.listen(8080, function() {
    console.log("Listening on port 8080")
})

npm install engine.io-stream
