Hubot.io

This is an external hubot-script that attaches a socket.io instance to Hubot's HTTP Listener. Because, why not?

Installing

  1. Add hubot.io as a dependency to your hubot: "hubot.io": ">= 0.1.0"
  2. Tell hubot to load it. Add "hubot.io" to the external-scripts.json list in the hubot root folder.
  3. npm install while you grab a beer.
  4. (Optional but recommended) Set environment variable NODE_ENV to production.

Usage & Examples

Initialize your socket.io code by attaching callback to the sockets:connection event on hubot and proceed to use socket.io as usual.

module.exports = (robot) ->
  robot.on 'sockets:connection', (socket) ->
    socket.emit 'news', hello: 'world'
    socket.on 'other event', (data) -> console.log data

  # Don't forget to include client-side code
  robot.router.get '/', (req, res) ->
    res.writeHead 200, 'Content-Type': 'text/html'
    res.end '''
      <script src="/socket.io/socket.io.js"></script>
      <script>
        var socket = io.connect('http://localhost');
        socket.on('news', function (data) {
          console.log(data);
          socket.emit('my other event', { my: 'data' });
        });
      </script>
      <body>
        <!-- Blah blah. -->
      </body>
    '''
