In last two month I have been working on WebSocket support for ZeroMQ and
I was having some conversions regarding the subject and with Pieter
suggestion I'm making it a public conversation, following is a summary:
ZWS is a ZeroMQ over WebSockets, the protocol is raw and subject to
changes. After some discussion with Michael Haberler we agreed that having
a binary protocol is better (currently the protocol support text messages
only), however the RFC is not yet updated. You can read the rfc at
date with ZWS) - you can read more here: https://github.com/zeromq/JSMQ
Currently the only server side component that can talk to JSMQ is NetMQ
based bridge https://github.com/somdoron/NetMQ.WebSockets.
While it best to have it as transport inside ZeroMQ, pluggable transport is
not yet ready so the plan is to have a CZMQ bridge (something like curvezmq
that will implement ZWS.
Michael Haberler actually implemented ZWS as part of machinekit project,
you can take a look here:
Contributing: JSMQ is running on the zeromq organization on github and we
will use C4.1 process and we need contributors and maintainers.
Also help is needed with the CZMQ bridge.
