How to use

A standalone build of socket.io-client is exposed automatically by the socket.io server as /socket.io/socket.io.js. Alternatively you can serve the file socket.io.js found in the dist folder.

<script src="/socket.io/socket.io.js"></script>
<script>
  var socket = io('http://localhost');
  socket.on('connect', function(){});
  socket.on('event', function(data){});
  socket.on('disconnect', function(){});
</script>

A slim build (without JSON3, a JSON polyfill for IE6/IE7, and debug) is also available: socket.io.slim.js.

Socket.IO is compatible with browserify.

Node.JS (server-side usage)

Add socket.io-client to your package.json and then:

  var socket = require('socket.io-client')('http://localhost');
  socket.on('connect', function(){});
  socket.on('event', function(data){});
  socket.on('disconnect', function(){});
