How to use

Suppose you have declared a remote function foo in your meteor server code :

Meteor.methods({
  foo : function (arg) {
    check(arg, Number);
    if (arg == 1) { return 42; }
    return "You suck";
  }
});

Then in your php client's code, you could just invoke foo by executing :

use zyzo\MeteorDDP\DDPClient;

$client = new DDPClient('localhost', 3000);

$client->connect();

$client->call("foo", array(1));
while(($a = $client->getResult("foo")) === null) {};

echo 'Result = ' . $a . PHP_EOL;

$client->stop();

===>

Result = 42
