Usage:

See example/lib/main.dart for more detailed example

	final SOCKET_SERVER = 'http://192.168.1.2:7070/';	//To be modified accordingly
    SocketIO socket;
	StreamSubscription connectSubscription;
	StreamSubscription echoSubscription;

	Future<void> demonstrateSocket() async {
    	// Create a socket instance
		socket = await SocketIOManager().createInstance(
        	SocketOptions(SOCKET_SERVER),
        );

		// Listen to a socket event
		subscription = socket.onConnect.listen((data){   //listen to socket connect event
		  print('connected: $data');
		  socket.emit('message', ['Hello world!']);
		});

        // Listen to an custom event
		echoSubscription = socket.on('echo', (data){   //listen to 'news' event
		  print("news event recieved with data: $data");
		});

        // connect to socket server - will initialize connection,
        //  but not ensure the connection yet.
        //  If this method used to connect to server, then emit events should be sent
        //  only after ensuring connection to socket server is successful by listening
        //  to onConnect events
		// await socket.connect();

        // This API will ensure connection to server is successful
        //  or will throw error on connect error
        await socket.connectSync();

        // publish data - will publish to server, won't ensure the delivery
		await socket.emit('echo', ['hello']);

        // emit with acknowledgement - will publish to server
        //  and ensure delivery with ack if ack is implemented in server
        dynamic ackData = await socket.emitWithAck('echo', ['hello']);
        print('acknowledgement recieved from server: $ackData');
	}

    Future<void> dispose() async {
    	// cancel echo and onConnect subscriptions
	    await echoSubscription.cancel();
	    await connectSubscription.cancel();

        // clear socket instance from manager
    	await SocketIOManager().clearInstance(socket);
    }

	// register liteners, connect to a socket, and publish data
	demonstrateSocket();

    // will dispose listeners and socket
    dispose();

Running example: #

  1. clone the project
  2. start socket server in the background
cd socket.io.server
npm i
./node_modules/.bin/pm2/ index.js
cd ../
  1. open example/lib/main.dart and edit the URI in #7 to point to your hosted/local socket server instances as mentioned step 2

    For example:

     const String URI = "http://192.168.1.2:7000/";
    
     const String URI = "http://mysite.com/";
    
  2. run example

cd example
flutter run
