Optimize Toolset

I’ve always been into building performant and accessible sites, but lately I’ve been taking it extremely seriously. So much so that I’ve been building a tool to help me optimize and monitor the sites that I build to make sure that I’m making an attempt to offer the best experience to those who visit them. If you’re into performant, accessible and SEO friendly sites, you might like it too! You can check it out at Optimize Toolset.

About

Hi, 👋, I’m Ryan Hefner  and I built this site for me, and you! The goal of this site was to provide an easy way for me to check the stats on my npm packages, both for prioritizing issues and updates, and to give me a little kick in the pants to keep up on stuff.

As I was building it, I realized that I was actually using the tool to build the tool, and figured I might as well put this out there and hopefully others will find it to be a fast and useful way to search and browse npm packages as I have.

If you’re interested in other things I’m working on, follow me on Twitter or check out the open source projects I’ve been publishing on GitHub.

I am also working on a Twitter bot for this site to tweet the most popular, newest, random packages from npm. Please follow that account now and it will start sending out packages soon–ish.

Open Software & Tools

This site wouldn’t be possible without the immense generosity and tireless efforts from the people who make contributions to the world and share their work via open source initiatives. Thank you 🙏

Readme

koa-websocket

CI Status

Koa v2 is now the default. For Koa v1 support install with koa-websocket@2 and see the legacy branch.

Supports ws:// and wss://

Installation

npm install koa-websocket

Usage

const Koa = require('koa'),
  route = require('koa-route'),
  websockify = require('koa-websocket');

const app = websockify(new Koa());

// Regular middleware
// Note it's app.ws.use and not app.use
app.ws.use(function(ctx, next) {
  // return `next` to pass the context (ctx) on to the next ws middleware
  return next(ctx);
});

// Using routes
app.ws.use(route.all('/test/:id', function (ctx) {
  // `ctx` is the regular koa context created from the `ws` onConnection `socket.upgradeReq` object.
  // the websocket is added to the context on `ctx.websocket`.
  ctx.websocket.send('Hello World');
  ctx.websocket.on('message', function(message) {
    // do something with the message from client
        console.log(message);
  });
}));

app.listen(3000);

Example with Let's Encrypt (the Greenlock package):

const Koa = require('koa');
const greenlock = require('greenlock-express');
const websockify = require('koa-websocket');
 
const le = greenlock.create({
  // all your sweet Let's Encrypt options here
});
 
// the magic happens right here
const app = websockify(new Koa(), wsOptions, le.httpsOptions);
 
app.ws.use((ctx) => {
   // the websocket is added to the context as `ctx.websocket`.
  ctx.websocket.on('message', function(message) {
    // do something
  });
});
 
app.listen(3000);

With custom websocket options.

const Koa = require('koa'),
  route = require('koa-route'),
  websockify = require('koa-websocket');

const wsOptions = {};
const app = websockify(new Koa(), wsOptions);

app.ws.use(route.all('/', (ctx) => {
   // the websocket is added to the context as `ctx.websocket`.
  ctx.websocket.on('message', function(message) {
    // print message from the client
    console.log(message);
  });
}));

app.listen(3000);

API

websockify(KoaApp, [WebSocketOptions], [httpsOptions])

The WebSocket options object just get passed right through to the new WebSocketServer(options) call.

The optional HTTPS options object gets passed right into https.createServer(options). If the HTTPS options are passed in, koa-websocket will use the built-in Node HTTPS server to provide support for the wss:// protocol.
