wslite: a simple, pure node.js websocket library

This project is based on the excellent ws library by Einar Otto Stangvik. ws can be found at

Differences between wslite and ws

  • Fewer dependencies (only options and commander required)
  • Pure JavaScript, although fully compatible (and automatically detects) bufferutil and validation utilities from ws
  • Rewritten WebSocketServer, simplified/extended API incompatible with original
  • Build scripts/benchmarks/examples/tests/docs removed (tests will return in the near future)

So which should I use?

In short: ws. This library has been stripped down and repurposed for a specific use case
