Installation

You have two possibilities described below.
Don't hesitate to look at the examples.

Modular and clean method - Static lib

  • Open the main project with QtCreator (QtWebsocket.pro) or Visual Studio (QtWebsocket.sln).
  • Compile the project, this will result in a static lib (*.lib or *.a file).
  • Add the header files (.h) from the QtWebsocket directory in your project.
  • Link the generated static lib to your project.
  • Compile your project !

Easy and hard method - Add the sources to your project

  • Copy the QtWebsocket directory in your project.
  • Add the header and cpp files in your project.
  • Compile your project !

Documentation

No doc for the moment, the best way is to look at the examples.
I created it to show how you can use properly the lib.
