In the package manager, add WebSockets. Then paste this into a REPL:
julia> using WebSockets julia> serverWS = WebSockets.ServerWS((req) -> WebSockets.Response(200), (ws_server) -> (writeguarded(ws_server, "Hello"); readguarded(ws_server))) WebSockets.ServerWS(handler=#17(req), wshandler=#18(ws_server), connection_count=7) julia> ta = @async WebSockets.with_logger(WebSocketLogger()) do WebSockets.serve(serverWS, port = 8000) end Task (runnable) @0x000000000fc91cd0 julia> WebSockets.HTTP.get("http://127.0.0.1:8000") HTTP.Messages.Response: """ HTTP/1.1 200 OK Transfer-Encoding: chunked """ julia> WebSockets.open("ws://127.0.0.1:8000") do ws_client data, success = readguarded(ws_client) if success println(stderr, ws_client, " received:", String(data)) end end; WebSocket(client, CONNECTED) received:Hello WARNING: Workqueue inconsistency detected: popfirst!(Workqueue).state != :queued julia> put!(serverWS.in, "close!") "close!" julia> ta Task (done) @0x000000000fc91cd0
Access inline documentation and have a look at the examples folder! The testing files also demonstrate a variety of uses. Benchmarks show examples of websockets and servers running on separate processes, as oposed to asyncronous tasks.
Originally from 2013 and Julia 0.2, the WebSockets API has remained largely unchanged. It now depends on HTTP.jl for establishing the http connections. That package is in ambitious development, and most functionality of this package is already implemented directly in HTTP.jl.
This more downstream package may lag behind the latest version of HTTP.jl, and in so doing perhaps avoid some borderline bugs. This is why the examples and tests do not import HTTP methods directly, but rely on the methods imported in this package. E.g. by using
WebSockets.HTTP.listen instead of
HTTP.listen you may possibly be using the previous release of package HTTP. The imported HTTP version is capped so as to avoid possible issues when new versions of HTTP are released.
WebSockets are well suited for user interactions via a browser or cross-platform applications like electron. Workload and development time can be moved off Julia resources, error checking code can be reduced. Preferably use websockets for passing arguments, not code, between compiled functions on both sides; it has both speed and security advantages over passing code for evaluation.
readguaredare blocking functions, you can easily end up reading indefinitely from any side of the connection. See the
closefunction code for an example of non-blocking read with a timeout.
@wslogare not accurate. To accurately track sequences of logging messages, include the time in your logging message, e.g. using 'time_ns()'
Error messages from run-time are directed to a .out channel. See inline docs: ?Websockets.serve.
writeguarded, errors are logged with
@debug statements. Set the logging level of the logger you use to 'Debug', as in 'examples/count_with_logger.jl'.
If you prefer to write your own server coroutine with this approach, error messages may be sent as messages to the client. This may not be good practice if you're serving pages to the internet, but very nice while developing locally. There are some inline comments in the source code which may be of help.
The issues section is used for planning development: Contributions are welcome.
WebSocketLogger. It closely resembles
ConsoleLoggerfrom the Julia standard library. Additional features: see inline docs and 'examples/count_with_logger.jl'. With this closer integration with Julia's core logging functionality, we also introduce
writeguarded(as well as when receiving 'ping' or 'pong'). The functions still return a boolean to indicate failure, but return no reason except the logger messages.
Updated to use HTTP 0.9 as a dependency.
Julia 0.7 is dropped from testing, but the compatibility as stated in 'Project.toml' is kept, since HTTP is also claiming to be 0.7 compatible and we do not want to put too many restraints on the compatibility graph. The non-compatibility is that @wslog will not quite work.
WebSockets.DEFAULTOPTIONS has changed to WebSockets.default_options() The previous behaviour is considered a bug, and might result in close(s1::ServerWS) or put!(s1::ServerWS.in, "close") also closing s2::ServerWS.
The 'listen... do' syntax example is removed. You now need to wrap the handler function: handler(req) = WebSockets.Response(200) handler_wrap = WebSockets.RequestHandlerFunction(handler)
The function that accepts RequestHandlerFunction is called
handle. It replaces
handle_request, which was more accepting.
Consider taking keyword option values from the new function WebSockets.default_options()
There are no changes if you're using syntax like examples/minimal_server.jl.
Keywords 'cert' and 'key' are no longer accepted. Instead, make sure you're using the same version of MbedTLS as WebSockets.HTTP this way:
sslconf = WebSockets.SSLConfig(cert, key) ServerWS(h,w, sslconfig = sslconf)
The upgrade to using HTTP 0.8 changes the bevaviour of server options. Try not passing any options to ServerWS. If you do, they will overrule the list of options in WebSockets.DEFAULTOPTIONS.
Type ServerOptions is removed and the corresponding fields now reside in ServerWS.
The optional function 'tcpisvalid' used to take two arguments; it should now take only one.
Ratelimiting is now performed outside of optional user functions, if you pass keyword rate_limit ≠ nothing.
Keyword logger is no longer supported. For redirecting logs, use Logging.with_logger
We removed the default ratelimit! function, since the way it worked was counter-intuitive and slowed down most use cases. If you have not provided any ratelimit to SererOptions in the past, you may be able to notice a very tiny performance improvement. See issue #124 and the inline documentation.
WebSockets additionaly exports WebSocketLogger, @wslog, Wslog.
This version is driven by large restructuring in HTTP.jl. We import more functions and types into WebSockets, e.g., WebSockets.Request. The main interface does not, intentionally, change, except for 'origin', which should now be qualified as WebSockets.origin.
The introduction of client side websockets to this package in version 0.5.0 may require changes in your code:
WebSocket.idfield is no longer supported. You can generate unique counters by code similar to 'bencmark/functions_open_browsers.jl' COUNTBROWSER.
writeguardedto save on error handling code.
WebSockets.WebsocketHandler(or just pass a function without wrapper)
HTTP.HandlerFunction(or just pass a function without wrapper)
You may also want to consider using
are compatible with both of the types above.
