Go Report Card

Try browsing the code on Sourcegraph!


This software is written in Go - the WYSIWYG lang

Why I wrote this software?

  1. I wanted to learn Go and I needed a non trivial application;
  2. I use Pusher in some projects;
  3. I really like Pusher;

Client javascript library

var pusher = new Pusher(APP_KEY, {
  wsHost: 'localhost',
  wsPort: 8080,
  wssPort: 4433,    // Required if encrypted is true
  encrypted: false, // Optional. the application must use only SSL connections
  enabledTransports: ["ws", "flash"],
  disabledTransports: ["flash"]

Client server libraries

Ruby = 'localhost'
Pusher.port = 8080


$pusher = new Pusher(APP_KEY, APP_SECRET, APP_ID, DEBUG, "http://localhost", "8080");


var pusher = new Pusher({
  appId: APP_ID,
  key: APP_KEY,
  secret: APP_SECRET
  domain: 'localhost',
  port: 80
