jquery-socket.io

$(document).ready( function () {

    var jqSH = $.socketio();

    // greet the user on their console
    $(jqSH).bind('greeting', function(event, message){

        if(window.console) console.log(message);

    });
                    
});

How it works

It binds:

  1. socket.io messages sent from the server to jquery events and

  2. jquery events fired from the browser to socket.io messages sent from the client

Usage

there is both a client and a (node.js) server example in this repository to help you get started

Repository Layout

the wrapper branch shows how it works behind the scenes

the master or plugin branch allows you to just include and go
