WebSocket PhoneGap iPhone Plugin
NOTE: this plugin is no longer required as iOS provides native WebSockets to PhoneGap as of iOS v4 - some moons ago, so you don't need this project any more.
I'm just leaving this here for historical purposes.
- Copy WebSocketCommand.m/h to your project.
- Copy websocket.js to your www directory.
Then use the WebSocket as according to the specification.
Known issues & untested cases
This list might be bigger than I think - but here's what I can think of:
- Doesn't support paths on ws urls, i.e. ws://example.com:8000 works, but ws://example.com/myapp:8000 won't
- I've not tested multiple sockets at all - I'm not sure what will happen
- I don't think the socket is being disconnected on exit. I would expect the app to release the socket, but on my server side I wasn't seeing the sockets being released - kinda worrying...though it might just be that I missed that.
I don't know how to write Objective-C so if this is a complete mess, I blame laziness entirely.
