Kind of udp support for the browser : replace the dgram module. Behind the scene, a socket.io/udp proxy makes this possible.

dgram-browserify is a wrapper around simudp for automatic browserify support.

Be careful, for the moment, the main browserify version provides a broken implementation of Buffer. That's why this version should be used..


$ npm install dgram-browserify


Server-side, the proxy server should be launched :

var server = require('http').createServer();



Note : see listen options

Browser-side with browserify :

var dgram = require('dgram');

//be sure Buffer is present
var Buffer = require('buffer').Buffer;

var socket = dgram.createSocket('udp4');

var hello = new Buffer('hello');
socket.send(hello, 0, hello.length, 3000, 'anywhere.com');

socket.on('message', function(buf, rinfo) {

//you've understood, it's dgram for the browser...
