Communications framework for both client and server built on socket.io and node.js

What is it?

It's an easy way to tie a node.js backend to a javascript-enabled front end via websockets (socket.io) without having to worry about the details.

Check out this gist to see how simple it is to use.

Getting Started

git clone git@github.com:aelaguiz/message.socket.io.git

cd message.socket.io

git submodule init

git submodule update

make

node example/runme.js

Navigate to http://localhost:8084 in your favorite web browser.

Your favorite web browser should be chrome, because that's all I have tested with.

Notes

This is basically just a bunch of code I wrote for my own experimentation, I wrote it in Ubuntu 10.10 using chrome beta 10+. That's the only place I've tested any of it, but I've been lead to believe it works elsewhere.

The example is the documentation. I'd much rather write source code than documentation.

There is no license really, you can steal it and take credit for it. Whatever.
