reconnect-engine

Reconnect an engine.io stream when it goes down.

Usage

Create an http server and mount engine.io onto it:

var http = require('http');
var Engine = require('engine.io-stream');

var server = http.createServer(function (req, res) {
  // ...
});

var engine = Engine(function (stream) {
  stream.end('yup, I\'m up!');
});

engine.attach(server, '/engine');
server.listen(8000);

The connect to it from the browser:

var reconnect = require('reconnect-engine');

reconnect(function (stream) {
  stream.on('data', function (data) {
    console.log(data);
    // => yup, I'm up!
  });
}).connect('/engine');

For the events you can listen to, see reconnect-core.

Installation

With npm do:

npm install reconnect-engine

Then bundle for the browser with browserify or grab a prebuilt bundle that exposes reconnect-engine on the window object.
