ipfs-pubsub-room

made by Protocol Labs Freenode Build Status

Creates a room based on a LibP2P pub-sub channel. Emits membership events, listens for messages, broadcast and direct messeges to peers.

(Demo video)

Install

$ npm install ipfs-pubsub-room

Use

Creating a pubsub room from a LibP2P node

const Room = require('ipfs-pubsub-room')
const Libp2p = require('libp2p')

const libp2p = new Libp2p({ ... })
await libp2p.start()

// libp2p node is ready, so we can start using ipfs-pubsub-room
const room = Room(libp2p, 'room-name')

Creating a pubsub room from an IPFS node

const Room = require('ipfs-pubsub-room')
const IPFS = require('ipfs')

const ipfs = await IPFS.create({ ... })
const room = Room(ipfs, 'room-name')

Once we have a room we can listen for messages

room.on('peer joined', (peer) => {
  console.log('Peer joined the room', peer)
})

room.on('peer left', (peer) => {
  console.log('Peer left...', peer)
})

// now started to listen to room
room.on('subscribed', () => {
  console.log('Now connected!')
})

API

Room (libp2p:LibP2P, roomName:string, options:object)

  • libp2p: LibP2P node. Must have pubsub activated
  • roomName: string, global identifier for the room
  • options: object:
    • pollInterval: interval for polling the pubsub peers, in ms. Defaults to 1000.
const room = Room(libp2p, 'some-room-name')

room.broadcast(message)

Broacasts message (string or buffer).

room.sendTo(cid, message)

Sends message (string or buffer) to peer.

async room.leave()

Leaves room, stopping everything.

room.getPeers()

Returns an array of peer identifiers (strings).

room.hasPeer(cid)

room.on('message', (message) => {})

Listens for messages. A message is an object containing the following properties:

  • from (string): peer id

room.on('peer joined', (cid) => {})

Once a peer has joined the room.

room.on('peer left', (cid) => {})

Once a peer has left the room.

room.on('subscribed',() => {})

Once your program has subscribed the topic and announced through IPFS pubsub.
