Simple WebSocket Client/Server for PHP

A simple websocket server and client package for PHP 7.1.

Installation

The library is PSR-4 compatible, with a vendor name of Wrench. It's available on Composer as wrench/wrench, so you can:

composer require wrench/wrench ~3.0

Usage

This creates a server on 127.0.0.1:8000 with one Application that listens for WebSocket requests to ws://localhost:8000/echo and ws://localhost:8000/chat:

/**
 * An example application, that just echoes the received data back to the connection that sent it
 */
$app = new class implements \Wrench\Application\DataHandlerInterface
{
    public function onData(string $data, \Wrench\Connection $connection): void
    {
        $connection->send($data);
    }
};

// A websocket server, listening on port 8000
$server = new \Wrench\BasicServer('ws://localhost:8000', array(
    'allowed_origins' => array(
        'mysite.com',
        'mysite.dev.localdomain'
    )
));

$server->registerApplication('echo', $app);
$server->registerApplication('chat', new \My\ChatApplication());
$server->setLogger($monolog); // PSR3
$server->run();
