Monday, October 6th, 2008 client library for networking

Category: Comet, JavaScript, Library

Michael Carter et al have been working on, a client library that gives you networking, including Comet like support, via JavaScript.

The low level work can sit upon Comet APIs, and in the future, Web Sockets, and you get high level APIs to protocols such as:

  • amqp
  • imap
  • irc
  • ldap
  • smtp
  • ssh
  • stomp
  • telnet
  • xmpp

There are some demos such as LiveHelp that uses Orbited as the backend.

Seems like the server is pingable, but the webserver isn’t responding :(

I couldn’t get the SVN client to connect and doenload the code, so I pulled down the trunk manually. There seems to be a dependency on the Orbited Python daemon js code ( that is missing. I suspect that this is the piece that links the code that does the actual socket level communication since JavaScript is not able to do this sort of thing by itself.

Just saw the last line reference to Orbited — ignore my post above.
