This library implements a backplane server and client on NodeJS.



npm install backplane


This library includes 3 major components. A client for periodically polling an existing backplane server, a backplane server that runs on a plain node installation and a backplane server designed to work with connect.


The client is used to poll an existing backplane server for messages. Once created it will check the backplane server for new messages at a specified interval.

Connect Server:

This component implements a response handler for using with the Connect middleware framework.

Plain Node Server:

This component allows you to create a backplane server on a vanilla node installation.
