Example Usage

The following examples show how a client and server can be configured to work with, using rtc-quickconnect on the frontend.


Run using node examples/server.js:

var http = require('http');
var server = http.createServer();
var io = require('')(server);
var board = require('rtc-switch')();
var port = process.env.PORT || 3000;

io.on('connection', function(socket){
  var peer = board.connect();

  socket.on('rtc-signal', peer.process);
  peer.on('data', function(data) {
    socket.emit('rtc-signal', data);

server.listen(port, function(err) {
  if (err) {
    return console.error('could not start server: ', err);

  console.log('server running @ http://localhost:' + port);


Run using beefy examples/client.js:

var socket = require('')('http://localhost:3000');
var quickconnect = require('rtc-quickconnect');
var signaller = require('')(socket);
var freeice = require('freeice');
var qc = quickconnect(signaller, {
  room: 'socketio-signalling-demo',
  iceServers: freeice()

// let quickconnect know we want a datachannel

// once the data channel is opened, let us know
qc.on('channel:opened:test', function(id, dc) {
  console.log('data channel opened with peer: ' + id);
