NAME ^

Net::WebSocket::Server - A straightforward Perl WebSocket server with minimal dependencies.

SYNOPSIS ^

Simple echo server for utf8 messages.

    use Net::WebSocket::Server;

    Net::WebSocket::Server->new(
        listen => 8080,
        on_connect => sub {
            my ($serv, $conn) = @_;
            $conn->on(
                utf8 => sub {
                    my ($conn, $msg) = @_;
                    $conn->send_utf8($msg);
                },
            );
        },
    )->start;

Broadcast-echo server for utf8 and binary messages.

    use Net::WebSocket::Server;

    my $origin = 'http://example.com';

    Net::WebSocket::Server->new(
        listen => 8080,
        on_connect => sub {
            my ($serv, $conn) = @_;
            $conn->on(
                handshake => sub {
                    my ($conn, $handshake) = @_;
                    $conn->disconnect() unless $handshake->req->origin eq $origin;
                },
                utf8 => sub {
                    my ($conn, $msg) = @_;
                    $_->send_utf8($msg) for $conn->server->connections;
                },
                binary => sub {
                    my ($conn, $msg) = @_;
                    $_->send_binary($msg) for $conn->server->connections;
                },
            );
        },
    )->start;

DESCRIPTION ^

This module implements the details of a WebSocket server and invokes the provided callbacks whenever something interesting happens. Individual connections to the server are represented as Net::WebSocket::Server::Connection objects.

CONSTRUCTION ^

Net::WebSocket::Server->new(%opts)
    Net::WebSocket::Server->new(
        listen => 8080,
        on_connect => sub { ... },
    ),

Creates a new Net::WebSocket::Server object with the given configuration. Takes the following parameters:

listen

If not a reference, the TCP port on which to listen. If a reference, a preconfigured IO::Socket::INET TCP server to use. Default 80.

silence_max

The maximum amount of time in seconds to allow silence on each connection's socket. Every silence_max/2 seconds, each connection is checked for whether data was received since the last check; if not, a WebSocket ping message is sent. Set to 0 to disable. Default 20.

on_$event

The callback to invoke when the given $event occurs, such as on_connect. See "EVENTS".

METHODS ^

on(%events)
    $server->on(
        connect => sub { ... },
    ),

Takes a list of $event => $callback pairs; $event names should not include an on_ prefix. Typically, events are configured once via the constructor rather than later via this method. See "EVENTS".

start()

Starts the WebSocket server; registered callbacks will be invoked as interesting things happen. Does not return until "shutdown" in shutdown() is called.

connections()

Returns a list of the current Net::WebSocket::Server::Connection objects.

disconnect($socket)

Immediately disconnects the given $socket without calling the corresponding connection's callback or cleaning up the socket. For that, see "disconnect" in Net::WebSocket::Server::Connection, which ultimately calls this function anyway.

shutdown()

Closes the listening socket and cleanly disconnects all clients, causing the start() method to return.

EVENTS ^

Attach a callback for an event by either passing on_$event parameters to the constructor or by passing $event parameters to the on() method.

connect($server, $connection)

Invoked when a new connection is made. Use this event to configure the newly-constructed Net::WebSocket::Server::Connection object. Arguments passed to the callback are the server accepting the connection and the new connection object itself.
