mrpc Build Status

mrpc is an asynchronous RPC system designed with performance in mind. It is fast, efficient and dead easy to understand and use.

For a complete overview of what mrpc does under the hood, see the SPEC.md.

Examples

For example, starting the following server:

var mrpc = require("mrpc");

var server = mrpc({
    transform: function(s, cb){
        cb(s.replace(/[aeiou]{2,}/, 'oo').toUpperCase());
    }
});

server.listen(5004);

And the following client:

var mrpc = require("mrpc");

var m = mrpc.connect(5004, function(remote){
    remote.transform("beep", function(s){
        console.log("beep => " + s);
        m.end();
    });
});

Outputs:

$ node beep-server.js &
[1] 12163
$ node beep-client.js
beep => BOOP
