As this lib is not used anymore by the maintainers, the support has sadly been dropped. But rejoice, as a new repo is now maintained in its own organization : https://github.com/ElephantIO/elephant.io ! :)


We are suggesting you to use composer, with the following : php composer.phar require wisembly/elephant.io. For other ways, you can check the release page, or the git clone urls.


The docs are not written yet, but you should check the example directory to get a basic knowledge 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.
