There are two main libraries for using websockets on a NodeJS server:
Both are in an interim state right node as the web socket standard continues to evolve. Draft-10 is the latest specification and it was is supported by the Chrome browser. But the libraries don’t support draft-10 yet.
Miksago, the developer of the Node Websocket Server, is working in implementing draft-10 support. See the Support draft-10 (chrome 14-dev+) issue on github.
Socket.IO has an open issue at Chrome Dev (14.0.835.8): “WebSocket is closed before the connection is established.”
I’m still mulling where to take this NoDoJo project. Do I make it use Ajax instead of the websockets? Not sure yet.
