A simple synchronous websocket server implementation. Designed for short term connections and best on thread-per-request application servers (e.g. puma).
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install utopia-websocket
Here is how to use within
on 'list' do |request| fail! unless ::(request.env) ::.(request.env) do |connection| read, write = IO.pipe Process.spawn("ls -lah", :out => write) write.close read.each_line do |line| connection.text(line) end connection.close end success! end
connection is an instance of
If you want to handle incoming messages, you must listen for these and then handle them:
on 'echo' do |request| fail! unless ::(request.env) ::.(request.env) do |connection| connection.on(:message) do |event| connection.text(event.data) connection.close end end success! end
This implementation is currently not designed for many long-term connections as it will 'use' one request for the duration of the websocket life. However, this model is rather simple and easy to reason about. For more complex client/server interactions, a dedicated server using Celluloid might be more appropriate.
