Wasabi

A simple then powerful replication library using binary encoding over WebSockets. Released under the MIT License.

npm install wasabi

The main advantages of using Wasabi are:

  • All data is tightly packed as binary rather than JSON, with user-specified precision.
  • You only need to write a single short function per class to start replicating
  • Replicated object lifetimes can be managed based on a "scope" callback which may be set for each client (or not at all)
  • Remote RPC invocation works exactly like local function calls
  • Prototypal inheritance is fully supported out-of-the-box
  • You can get started without much boilerplate, then define additional functions to increase performance when you become production-ready
  • Reliable construction: A well-rounded test suite with 100% branch coverage
