A simple drop-in replacement for node's TCP server that supports the WebSocket protocol.

WebSocket Server

websocket is a simple wrapper around tcp.createServer that abstracts away the details of a browser WebSocket. It's designed to be a drop in replacement for a regular TCP server, but be accessible from a browser that supports WebSocket.

var websocket = require("websocket");
var server = websocket.createServer(function (socket) {

  socket.write("hello\r\n");

  socket.addListener("data", function (data) {
    socket.write(data);
  });
  socket.addListener("end", function () {
    socket.write("goodbye\r\n");
    socket.end();
  });
});
server.listen(7000, "localhost");

This implementation is quick and dirty and skips over a lot of details. For example it doesn't validate any of the same origin stuff.

For a more fleshed out implementation, but with a larger api, please see http://github.com/guille/node.websocket.js/
