Hi, there seem to be two plugins developed for socket.io:
Anyone know what the difference is between them, and which one is best to use to use web sockets to node.js?
There's an official websocket plugin.
In general, I'd recommend to use official plugins as much as possible.
Wow, thats great. I cant open the capx in the socket.io tutorial which requires the unofficial one (https://www.scirra.com/tutorials/571/modded-socketio/page-1) anyway, so perhaps Ill just go it alone with the official plugin.
Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.
Ive just realised that the official one doesnt have the fallbacks that socket.io has. i.e. socket.io will work with IE8&9 (i.e. work with people stuck with XP) via its flash socket fallback.
Also, I cant get the oficial web socket plugin to work with socket.io running on node.js. I can write a js page which works with it, but cant get C2 to work with it. It never connects, no errors, nothing gets sent or received.
