WebSockets From Space*

* There are no users in space, only astronauts with the latest browser. Therefore no graceful fallback is attempted.

API

Setup

var server = http.createServer(...);
server.listen(port);

require('spacesocket').attach(server, function(conn) {
    dealWithWebSocket(conn);
});

Reading

conn.on('data', function(msg) {
    doStuffWithString(msg);
});

Writing

conn.write('Hello, World');

Closure

conn.end();

Buffer control

conn.on('drain', function() {
    // socket write queue is empty,
    // send until queueing again:
    while(conn.send(data)) { }
});

// Throttle sender for 1s:
conn.pause();
setTimeout(function() { conn.resume(); }, 1000);
