Gyre does local area discovery and clustering. A Gyre node broadcasts UDP beacons, and connects to peers that it finds. This class wraps a Gyre node with a message-based API.
All incoming events are delivered via the recv call of a Gyre instance. The first frame defines the type of the message, and following frames provide further values:
ENTER fromnode headers ipaddress a new peer has entered the network EXIT fromnode a peer has left the network JOIN fromnode groupname a peer has joined a specific group LEAVE fromnode groupname a peer has left a specific group WHISPER fromnode message a peer has sent this node a message SHOUT fromnode groupname message a peer has sent one of our groups a message
In SHOUT and WHISPER the message is a single frame in this version. In ENTER, the headers frame contains a packed dictionary.
To join or leave a group, use the Join and Leave methods. To set a header value, use the SetHeader method. To send a message to a single peer, use Whisper method. To send a message to a group, use Shout.
Run following command in a terminal:
docker run --rm -i --tty -t armen/gyre chat -name yourname
And repeat the above command in another terminal, the chat instances will discover eachother. Happy chatting!
