Rust-WebSocket is a WebSocket (RFC6455) library written in Rust.
Rust-WebSocket provides a framework for dealing with WebSocket connections (both clients and servers). The library is currently in an experimental state, but provides functionality for both normal and secure WebSockets, a message level API supporting fragmentation, a data frame level API, and the ability to extend and customize behaviour.
To add a library release version from crates.io to a Cargo project, add this to the 'dependencies' section of your Cargo.toml:
websocket = "0.20.2"
To add the library's Git repository to a Cargo project, add this to your Cargo.toml:
git = "https://github.com/cyderize/rust-websocket.git"
extern crate websocket; to your project.
The library can be compiled with tests and benches and some extra capabilities on Rust nightly. To enable the nightly features, use
cargo --features nightly ....
See the documentation for the latest release of the library here, and also the examples, which are located in
/examples and can be run with:
cargo run --example server
And in a separate terminal:
cargo run --example client
The library can be tested using
cargo test to run tests and
cargo bench to run bench tests.
A number of tests are included, which ensure core WebSocket functionality works as expected. These tests are not yet comprehensive, and are still being worked on.
Rust-WebSocket uses the Autobahn TestSuite to test conformance to RFC6455. If you have Autobahn TestSuite installed you can run these tests yourself using the commands:
wstest -m fuzzingserver
cargo run --example autobahn-client
To test the client implementation, and
wstest -m fuzzingclient
cargo run --example autobahn-server
To test the server implementation. The spec files are available here.
The results of these tests are available here.
