Wildcloud - Websockets

Service providing websockets to applications deployed in Wildcloud platform


Proof of concept implementation.

The service does not yet implement the interface as described below.

Client interface

  • SockJS


Application authorizes client with secret application id and custom client id. The service returns socket_id, that should be used for identifying that specific client (e.g. session of a user of a web application).

POST /authorize/application_id/client_id

with parameters in it's body, encoded as JSON.


To the callback url, a message published by client to the service, will be forwarded


with content of the message as the request body with other parameters encoded as JSON

{"message": "some message", "session": "session_id", "client": "client_id"}

where session id represent single connection between the client and this service (e.g. one window or tab in a browser).

To publish a message, the application posts a request to the service with socket_id

POST /publish/socket_id

with JSON encoded body containing the message and optional parameters.

{"message": "some message"}

The service then forwards the message to the client (all sessions or just a specific one).

On the client-side the user connects using SockJS to the server and specifies the already authorized socket_id

var socket = new SockJS('');
