  • ws

    Simple to use, blazing fast and thoroughly tested WebSocket client and server for Node.js

    Latest mention: First attempt at React app | | 2021-01-09

    I'd recommend ditching and using ws instead. is an unnecessarily opinionated wrapper for standard websockets that require you to use their client and server and have extreme browser support with fallbacks that you probably don't want anyone to use. Use native websockets and you'll have more control and can use it with any client/server you want and it'll be far faster for your users.
