Version 2.x.x and 3.x.x has been moved to branch 3.x
Autoit-Socket-IO is a event driven TCP/IP wrapper heavily inspired from Socket.IO with focus on user friendliness and long term sustainability.
I constantly want to make this UDF faster and better, so if you have any suggestions or questions (beginner and advanced) Do not hesitate to ask them, I will gladly help!
Simple API 99% data-type serialization thanks to Autoit-Serialize Can easily be extended with your own functionality thanks to Autoit-Events "Educational" examples Data encryption thanks to _<Crypt.au3> Limitations
Speed. This UDF will sacrifice some speed for convenience Getting started
Download the script from AutoIt or pull it from the official github repo firstname.lastname@example.org:tarreislam/Autoit-Socket-IO.git and checkout the tag 4.0.0-beta Check out the documentaion Take a look in the examples/ folder Changelog
To see changes from 3.x.x and 2.x.x please checkout the 3.x branch
Version 4.0.0-beta (This update break scripts.)
Code base fully rewritten with Autoit-Events and decoupled to improve code quality and reduce bloat. The new UDF is very different from 3.x.x so please checkout the UPGRADE guide to fully understand all changes Added new documentation documentaion Success stories
Since December 2017-now I have used version 1.5.0 in an production environment for 150+ clients with great success, the only downtime is planned windows updates and power outages.

So here's what I'm trying to accomplish:
I need the ability to restart an application on my desktop PC from within my home network. Obviously, writing a script to do that locally would take all of ten seconds. The trick is that I want to do it remotely. I still feel like it wouldn't be difficult to accomplish with a server/client script.
But of course, that's not good enough. I want to do it from my iPhone. And the easiest way I can see to accomplish that would be through the browser.
So in my mind, I'm thinking that, on the server side, I can listen for connections on, let's say port 8080. I can watch for a "GET / HTTP/1.1" (or whatever it is...) and respond with a simple webpage that reports a status and has a reset button.
On my phone, I type, say 192.168.1.150:8080 and get that simple page. When I click the reset button, it sends a "GET /?reset=true" or something and that will trigger a function in the server script to reset the app.
So in essence, this would be a very simple web server, one that only serves a single, hardcoded page. But this seems too simple. Is it? Or is it actually way more complicated than that?
