websocket_message

The websocket_message event is fired when a message is received on an open WebSocket connection.

This event is normally handled by http.Websocket.receive, but it can also be pulled manually.

Return Values

  1. string: The event name.
  2. string: The URL of the WebSocket.
  3. string: The contents of the message.

Example

local myURL = "wss://example.tweaked.cc/echo"
local ws = http.websocket(myURL)
ws.send("Hello!")
local event, url, message
repeat
    event, url, message = os.pullEvent("websocket_message")
until url == myURL
print("Received message from " .. url .. " with contents " .. message)
ws.close()
