Simple Socket IO client

Quick and kinda dirty socket.io client using web sockets

Features

This client currently supports:

  • Listeners for all 9 possible message
  • Send messages of the type:
    • message
    • json
    • event

How to use:

require 'socketIO'

client = SocketIO.connect("localhost") do
  before_start do
    on_message {|message| puts "incoming message: #{message}"}
    on_event('news') { |data| puts data.first} # data is an array fo things.
  end

end

Sync vs Async

You can start the socket io syncronously and then continue with your work this crates threads so be careful.

require 'socketIO'

client = SocketIO.connect("localhost", sync: true) do
  before_start do
    on_message {|message| puts message}
    on_disconnect {puts "I GOT A DISCONNECT"}
  end

  after_start do
    emit("loadLogs", "/var/www/rails_app/log/production.log")
  end
end

puts "socket still running"
loop do
  sleep 10
  puts 'zzz'
end
