A PHP implementation of socket.io-emitter.

This project requires a Redis client for PHP. If you dont have the PECL Redis installed, the emitter will default to using TinyRedisClient. You can, however, pass in any Redis client that supports a publish method.

Installation and development

To install and use in your PHP project, install it as a composer package. Install dependencies with composer install.

To run tests, invoke make test. The current test suite will just be checking redis monitor that everything is published correctly. Some work will be put into making a better integration test suite in the near future.



$redis = new \Redis(); // Using the Redis extension provided client
$redis->connect('', '6379');
$emitter = new SocketIO\Emitter($redis);
$emitter->emit('event', 'payload str');

Broadcasting and other flags

Possible flags

  • json
  • volatile
  • broadcast
// Below initialization will create a  phpredis client, or a TinyRedisClient depending on what is installed
$emitter = new SocketIO\Emitter(array('port' => '6379', 'host' => ''));
// broadcast can be replaced by any of the other flags
$emitter->broadcast->emit('other event', 'such data');

Emitting objects

$emitter = new SocketIO\Emitter(); // If arguments are not provided, they will default to array('port' => '6379', 'host' => '')
$emitter->emit('event', array('property' => 'much value', 'another' => 'very object'));
