EM-WebSocket

EventMachine based, async, Ruby WebSocket server. Take a look at examples directory, or check out the blog post below:

Simple server example

EventMachine.run {

    EventMachine::WebSocket.start(:host => "0.0.0.0", :port => 8080) do |ws|
        ws.onopen {
          puts "WebSocket connection open"

          # publish message to the client
          ws.send "Hello Client"
        }

        ws.onclose { puts "Connection closed" }
        ws.onmessage { |msg|
          puts "Recieved message: #{msg}"
          ws.send "Pong: #{msg}"
        }
    end
}

Secure server

It is possible to accept secure wss:// connections by passing :secure => true when opening the connection. Safari 5 does not currently support prompting on untrusted SSL certificates therefore using signed certificates is highly recommended. Pass a :tls_options hash containing keys as described in http://eventmachine.rubyforge.org/EventMachine/Connection.html#M000296

For example,

EventMachine::WebSocket.start({
    :host => "0.0.0.0",
    :port => 443
    :secure => true,
    :tls_options => {
      :private_key_file => "/private/key",
      :cert_chain_file => "/ssl/certificate"
    }
}) do |ws|
...
end
