This small bundle is a Ratchet abstraction for Symfony 4. Just create message handlers and your server is set.


Open a command console, enter your project directory and execute:

$ composer require gonzakpo/websocket-bundle

Create handlers

Create services implementing HandlerInterface:


// src/Handler/WelcomeHandler.php
namespace App\Handler;

use Ratchet\ConnectionInterface;
use RollandRock\WebsocketBundle\Client\ClientStack;
use RollandRock\WebsocketBundle\Handler\HandlerInterface;

class WelcomeHandler implements HandlerInterface
    public static function getName(): string
        return 'welcome';

    public function handle(ClientStack $clientStack, ConnectionInterface $from, array $data)
        // Handle the "welcome" message sent by $from, containing $data.
        // You also have access to the whole clients stack

Configure handlers

The default port is 4242. You can change it. Also, the default clients that will be provided will be instances of RollandRock\WebsocketBundle\Client. You can extend it to fit your needs and specify it in the config.

    port: 3240
    client: App\Client\Client

Run the server

    php bin/console rr:websocket:server

Send messages

The messages need to have the following format :

      "type": "welcome",
      "data": {
        /* some data */
