API

routes

map.socket('some-event', 'controller#action');

When client emit event some-event, then action action of controller controller will gain control. Data passed to event will be available as params variable.

controller

action('some-action', function () {
    socket().emit('event', {some: 'data'}); // send 'event' to current client
    socket(anotherSessionID).emit('hello'); // send 'hello' to another user
                                            // identifyed by anotherSessionID
});

Any controller action (both socket and non-socket) can emit some event with connected client (current session client). If you want to communicate with another user need to specify session id as param of socket method.

Other socket.io API will be available later: join, broadcast, etc..
