Michael Feichtinger's Blog:
PHP5 WebSocket Example - A Simple Chat
February 03, 2011 @ 09:47:28

Michael Feichtinger has posted a simple websocket example to his blog today. It shows the creation of a simple "web chat" application for real-time communication without the mess that can come with ajax.

The classic example for websockets is a chat. This chat example has only 200 lines of code (excl. the Websocket class), is really easy to understand and customizable.

He creates a basic "WebsocketClass" class that (in his example) connects to an IP and port. It uses JSON as the messaging format and some basic javascript to handle the clicks of the "chat" and "login" buttons. You can see an example in action here and download the source for the server.php here.
