Quick Start with Composer

Create a directory for the test project

  $ mkdir thruway

Switch to the new directory

  $ cd thruway

Download Composer more info

  $ curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | php

Download Thruway and dependencies

  $ php composer.phar require voryx/thruway

If you're going to also use the Thruway Client install a client transport. You'll need this to run the examples

  $ php composer.phar require thruway/pawl-transport

Start the WAMP router

  $ php vendor/voryx/thruway/Examples/SimpleWsRouter.php

Thruway is now running on port 9090

PHP Client Example


require __DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php';

use Thruway\ClientSession;
use Thruway\Peer\Client;
use Thruway\Transport\PawlTransportProvider;

$client = new Client("realm1");
$client->addTransportProvider(new PawlTransportProvider("ws://"));

$client->on('open', function (ClientSession $session) {

    // 1) subscribe to a topic
    $onevent = function ($args) {
        echo "Event {$args[0]}\n";
    $session->subscribe('com.myapp.hello', $onevent);

    // 2) publish an event
    $session->publish('com.myapp.hello', ['Hello, world from PHP!!!'], [], ["acknowledge" => true])->then(
        function () {
            echo "Publish Acknowledged!\n";
        function ($error) {
            // publish failed
            echo "Publish Error {$error}\n";

    // 3) register a procedure for remoting
    $add2 = function ($args) {
        return $args[0] + $args[1];
    $session->register('com.myapp.add2', $add2);

    // 4) call a remote procedure
    $session->call('com.myapp.add2', [2, 3])->then(
        function ($res) {
            echo "Result: {$res}\n";
        function ($error) {
            echo "Call Error: {$error}\n";


Javascript Clients

You can also use AutobahnJS or any other WAMPv2 compatible client.

Here are some [examples] (https://github.com/tavendo/AutobahnJS#show-me-some-code)

Here's a plunker that will allow you to run some tests against a local router

For AngularJS on the frontend, use the Angular WAMP wrapper.
