Description Author

This object is a jQuery Chat plugin which can use HTML5 Websockets or HTML5 SSE (Server Sent Events) with AJAX Long Polling as fallback in order to fetch updated information from server instead of using old method of regular AJAX calls.

It can send and receive user messages to a server based on Websocket connections or server sent events connections or regular HTTP requests using AJAX.

It can invoke callback functions when a connection with the chat server is opened, when messages are exchanged or when an error happens.

This plugin can also be used in chat applications or wherever we have to call server at regular interval or stay connected with server to get latest information from server as its available on server like updating feed posts or any other contents, or get notifications, etc..

Websocket is a protocol based on HTTP that provides bidirectional communication between browsers and Web servers.

Websocket provides a better solution to implement interactive Web applications, like for instance chat systems, as it can provide a faster means to exchange messages in real time.

This jQuery plugin that can act as a chat client based on Websocket, but it can also fallback to AJAX requests for browsers that do not support Websocket.

Code to initialize object: var ms = new $('#msgchat').jqh5ajx({ msg_link:server_url, clbk_fnc:'setchatdtls' }); where server_url is the server url to call, and setchatdtls is the callback function. Code to send data using websocket: // use this condition to make sure it is using websocket connection if(typeof ms.mcevs != 'undefined' && ms.mcevs != null && typeof ms.chattype != 'undefined' && ms.chattype != null && ms.chattype == 'ws') { ms.send('text'); } Code to close websocket connection: // use this condition to make sure it is using websocket connection if(typeof ms.mcevs != 'undefined' && ms.mcevs != null && typeof ms.chattype != 'undefined' && ms.chattype != null && ms.chattype == 'ws') { ms.close(); } For handling web-sockets, can use any php web-socket server library like: 1) Ratchet PHP Web-Sockets library (http://socketo.me/) OR 2) https://github.com/Devristo/phpws
