Early last year I mentioned the SocketRocket library providing a client library for communicating using the WebSocket protocol.
Recently I was playing around with Node.js and wanted a way to communicate with a Node.js Socket.IO server. Socket.IO provides a very straightforward API for real-time updates between a client/server and utilizes WebSocket.
I came across Socket.IO-Objc a Socket.IO client library, an iOS Objective-C client library for Socket.IO.
You can find Socket.IO-objc on Github here with a number of usage examples.
If you’ve been looking for a way to work with a Socket.IO server easily through your Objective-C apps be sure to check it out.
