unreal engine 4 websocket plugin(support ssl) for both c++ and blueprint developer.
This plugin is for unreal engine 4 c++ and blueprint developers, you can easily use c++ or blueprint to connect to remote server and send receive messages.
Unreal network is great for FPS or moba and IO games, but there's some games, you need to process network by yourself, this plugin is for these people, you don't need to write any c++ code, the plugin support blueprint api to make json string from message object, and can also decode json to message object.
Even the io game, we still need to connect to non dedicated server, I first write this plugin for my poker game, and then I use this plugin in a simple .io shoot game, here is the demo webgl version:tankfire.io, you can open it with firefox(I use the latest firefox for test), please confirem your browser support webgl.
There's two level in the demo project, one for test websocket connect and send receive, The other level is test message Object serialize to json string, and from json string to message object. I did not use struct, because change a value of a struct in blueprint is not convenient.

★ Connect To Server
★ Bind Event, Send And Receive Data
★ Generate message class
When you work for a large game project, you can't write all message data class yourself, you need to use tools to generate message class. Under the ProtoTool/ there's a tool to generate cpp code for unreal engine 4 and d.ts for nodejs type info. I like use nodejs as my game server, the client and server communicate with json message. The proto write with js format, there's a example "message.js", you can run the "generatetue4.bat" to generate class.
★ Object to json
