janus-gateway-js Build Status codecov.io

About

Modern javascript client for janus gateway. Based on websockets. The original client can be found here https://janus.conf.meetecho.com/docs/rest.html.

Example of usage

var janus = new Janus.Client('address', {
  token: 'token',
  apisecret: 'apisecret'
});

janus.createConnection('id').then(function(connection) {
  connection.createSession().then(function(session) {
    session.attachPlugin('bla').then(function(plugin) {
      plugin.send({}).then(function(response){});
      plugin.on('message', function(message) {});
      plugin.detach();
    });
  });
});

Build

Project has a customized build. By default npm run-script build it builds the single file janus.js that contains Janus library and all its dependencies. In order to make the result less in size you have two command line arguments: --global and --external. The first is to map dependencies to global variables. Usually you want to do this when there is no loader mechanism. The latter is to externalize dependencies to a separate file vendor.js. In that case janus.js expects to have its dependencies as modules and relies on require mechanism. Here is the couple of examples.

  • Default build. It is used in integration tests.

    $(npm bin)/gulp
    
  • bluebird and webrtc-adapter are externalized to vendor.js

    $(npm bin)/gulp --external=bluebird --external=webrtc-adapter
    
  • bluebird and webrtc-adapter are expected to be in global namespace under names Promise and adapter correspondingly.

    $(npm bin)/gulp --global.bluebird=Promise --global.webrtc-adapter=adapter
    

API

The library is available for Node and Browser environment. In Browser it is declared through window.Janus. The exported classes are:

Important! Please read MediaPlugin's info when using in Node.

Client

  • new Client(address, [options]) Creates a new instance of Client.

    • address {string}. Websocket address of Janus server.
    • options {Object} options. Optional. See its specs in new Connection. The options object will be used for every new created connection by this client.

Tests

Tests are located under test/ directory. To run them use npm test.

Unit

These tests are located under test/unit/. To run them use $(npm bin)/mocha.

Integration

These tests are located under test/integration/. To run them you need:

  • Have a working instance of Janus server. Put its address to test/integration/config.json
  • to have a Chrome/Chromium no less than 51 version on the machine where you are going to run tests.
  • use $(npm bin)/karma start test/karma.conf.js to run tests. Please note that karma should be able to see the necessary version of Chrome.

Release

  • update package.json with a new version
  • release a new git tag with the updated package.json

After that the npm release should be done automatically. If it didn't happen then release it manually:

npm publish https://github.com/cargomedia/janus-gateway-js/archive/<GitTagWithUpdatedPackageJson>.tar.gz

Plugins

Currently the project has four implemented plugins: audiobridge, videostreaming, rtpbroadcast and audioroom. It is temporarily. As soon as the project is stable those plugins will be moved to their own repositories. If you require a plugin that is not implemented then you need to write it on your own.

How to write a Plugin

For simplicity lets write an EchoTest plugin that does only audio.

  function EchoTest() {
    Janus.MediaPlugin.apply(this, arguments);
  }

  EchoTest.NAME = 'janus.plugin.echotest';
  EchoTest.prototype = Object.create(Janus.MediaPlugin.prototype);
  EchoTest.prototype.constructor = EchoTest;

  Janus.Plugin.register(EchoTest.NAME, EchoTest);

  /**
   * @param {boolean} state
   * @returns {Promise}
   * @fulfilled {RTCSessionDescription} jsep
   */
  EchoTest.prototype.audio = function(state) {
    var self = this;
    return Promise
      .try(function() {
        return self.getUserMedia({audio: true, video: false});
      })
      .then(function(stream) {
        self.createPeerConnection();
        stream.getTracks().forEach(function(track) {
          self.addTrack(track, stream);
        });
      })
      .then(function() {
        return self.createOffer();
      })
      .then(function(jsep) {
        var message = {body: {audio: state}, jsep: jsep};
        return self.sendWithTransaction(message);
      })
      .then(function(response) {
        var jsep = response.get('jsep');
        if (jsep) {
          self.setRemoteSDP(jsep);
          return jsep;
        }
      });
  };

Then we can use it

var janus = new Janus.Client(config.url, config);
janus.createConnection('client')
  .then(function(connection) {
    return connection.createSession();
  })
  .then(function(session) {
    return session.attachPlugin(EchoTest.NAME);
  })
  .then(function(echotestPlugin) {
    return echotestPlugin.audio(true);
  })
