Hoa\Websocket

Help on IRC Help on Gitter Documentation Board

This library allows to manipulate the WebSocket protocol and proposes a server and a client. It supports two specifications RFC6455 and Hybi (at the same time).

Learn more.

Installation

With Composer, to include this library into your dependencies, you need to require hoa/websocket:

$ composer require hoa/websocket '~3.0'

For more installation procedures, please read the Source page.

Testing

Before running the test suites, the development dependencies must be installed:

$ composer install

Then, to run all the test suites:

$ vendor/bin/hoa test:run

For more information, please read the contributor guide.

Quick usage

As a quick overview, we propose to start a websocket server and echo messages. The class Hoa\Websocket\Server proposes six listeners: open, message, binary-message, ping, close and error. Thus:

$websocket = new Hoa\Websocket\Server(
    new Hoa\Socket\Server('ws://127.0.0.1:8889')
);
$websocket->on('open', function (Hoa\Event\Bucket $bucket) {
    echo 'new connection', "\n";

    return;
});
$websocket->on('message', function (Hoa\Event\Bucket $bucket) {
    $data = $bucket->getData();
    echo '> message ', $data['message'], "\n";
    $bucket->getSource()->send($data['message']);
    echo '< echo', "\n";

    return;
});
$websocket->on('close', function (Hoa\Event\Bucket $bucket) {
    echo 'connection closed', "\n";

    return;
});
$websocket->run();

Finally, we have to write a client in HTML and Javascript:

<input type="text" id="input" placeholder="Message…" />
<hr />
<pre id="output"></pre>

<script>
  var host   = 'ws://127.0.0.1:8889';
  var socket = null;
  var input  = document.getElementById('input');
  var output = document.getElementById('output');
  var print  = function (message) {
      var samp       = document.createElement('samp');
      samp.innerHTML = message + '\n';
      output.appendChild(samp);

      return;
  };

  input.addEventListener('keyup', function (evt) {
      if (13 === evt.keyCode) {
          var msg = input.value;

          if (!msg) {
              return;
          }

          try {
              socket.send(msg);
              input.value = '';
              input.focus();
          } catch (e) {
              console.log(e);
          }

          return;
      }
  });

  try {
      socket = new WebSocket(host);
      socket.onopen = function () {
          print('connection is opened');
          input.focus();

          return;
      };
      socket.onmessage = function (msg) {
          print(msg.data);

          return;
      };
      socket.onclose = function () {
          print('connection is closed');

          return;
      };
  } catch (e) {
      console.log(e);
  }
</script>

Here we are. All sent messages are echoed.
