npm install
npm start

Then open a web browser at localhost:3000:

open http://localhost:3000

Why SocketStream?

Building a simple chat app that uses websockets is easy, but rich, non-trivial, responsive realtime UI without ending up with a mess of code is hard SocketStream eases the pain by:

  • Integrating best-of-breed modules to increase productivity
  • Providing a sensible place to put everything
  • Accelerating development with Live Reload and (optional) support for Stylus, Jade, and other transpilers.
  • Accelerating deployment with integrated asset packing and CDN support
  • Organizing spaghetti client-side code into modules you can require() with Browserify
  • Working well with all major client-side frameworks (e.g. Backbone, Ember, Angular)

Applications using SocketStream

  • Dashku: Realtime dashboards and widgets using HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Also hosted at dashku.com.
  • SketchDeck: An app for designing great slide decks from sketches, also a Y Combinator tech startup.
  • Hollow: An interactive, emmy-nominated documentary.
  • Bitjoy: Realtime Bitcoin prices and news.
  • Teeleader: A booking engine for Golf courses.
