As we are not using anymore at Wisembly, and not having the time to maintain this library, we are looking for maintainers. Please look at the dedicated issue #135 !


You have multiple ways to install If you are unsure what to do, go with the archive release.

Once the library is downloaded and extracted wherever you want it to be, it should be loaded through a PSR-4 autoload mecanism, with a Wisembly\ElepehantIO prefix. This is not necessary with the composer way, as it is handling this part by itself.

Archive Release

  1. Download the most recent release from the release page
  2. Unpack the archive
  3. Move the files somewhere in your project

Development version

  1. Install Git
  2. git clone git://

Via Composer

  1. Install composer in your project: curl -s | php
  2. Create a composer.json file (or update it) in your project root:

        "require": {
          "wisembly/": "~3.0"
  3. Install via composer : php composer.phar install


The docs are not written yet, but you should check the example directory to have a basic knownledge on how this library is meant to work.

Special Thanks

Special thanks goes to Mark Karpeles who helped the project founder to understand the way websockets works.
