Tasslehoff should be a server-side client for socket.io apps. For instance, I've written a simple chatbox using socket.io that runs as its own node application and I wanted to write a chatbot that connects as a client using a completely separate node app.
Tasslehoff uses pgriess's node-websocket-client to handle the connection to socket.io and it adds a bit of socket.io-specific message handling on top of the basic websocket support.
$ git clone git://github.com/dpritchett/tasslehoff.git --recursive
$ cd tasslehoff
$ node client.js dpritchett.no.de
- Open dpritchett.no.de in a browser to see your client spamming the chatroom via socket.io.
