How to use

Kuzzle may send a multitude of messages to a client, either to respond to multiple asynchronous requests, or to notify events on client's subscriptions.
To allow a client to link a response to a request or to a subscription, Kuzzle normally features a room system for protocols allowing it.

Since WebSocket messages do not support this feature natively, all messages sent through this protocol contain an additional room attribute at the root of the message structure. Clients connecting to Kuzzle using this protocol must use this field to dispatch incoming messages to the right parts of an application.

This room attribute is either:

  • a request requestId, for request responses
  • a channel (see Kuzzle subscriptions), for notifications on subscriptions

How to create a plugin

See Kuzzle documentation about plugin for more information about how to create your own plugin.
