        publish_key: "pub-key"
        , subscribe_key: "sub-key"
    })
    , publish = pubnub.createWriteStream
    , subscribe = pubnub.createReadStream
    , WriteStream = require("write-stream")

    , subscribed = subscribe(channel)

Api surface

  • publish
  • subscribe
  • duplex

Work in progress

  • history
  • presence

Known issues

  • Sometimes you get the same published message multiple times in a subscription.

  • Sometimes a subscription does not give you the message you expect. (i.e. messages get lost permanently)

  • Sometimes a message gets lost in pubnub until you send another one and those two messages come together

  • Almost no sensible error handling

  • packets are not ordered
