That's probably the approach I'll take. I was just wondering if there was some inbuilt functionality, but it's not much work to do, so thanks. Have a nice day!
Possible to catch custom socket messages in a plugin?
I'm trying to catch a few custom socket messages from my plugin. Is there currentely a nice way to do so?
This seems to work for now, not the fanciest way but it works:
ModulesSockets = module.parent.require('./socket.io/modules'); ... ModulesSockets.custom = customSockets;
It will respond to api:modules.custom.func.
hello, i m also trying to use Sockets in my plugin, but i'm unable to find resources where it is written how to use it with NodeBB. if you have successfully written or made use of Socket can you please share it. by pasting here.
@Schamper You missed a perfect plug for us... http://blog.bitbangers.co.uk/using-websockets-in-your-nodebb-plugin/
@Scuzz didn't know you had it up there. Fix it
