React Mind Blown

This is a PHP port of the very awesome gifsockets by Alvaro Videla. It is using React/Http for delivery.

Installation

Through composer.

Usage

First, start the example server:

$ php examples/stdin.php

Next, open up a browser and point it to localhost:8080. Now you can start typing stuff into the server window. Each line captured by STDIN will be converted to a GIF frame and streamed to the browser in Real Time (tm), also known as Netscape Time (tm).
