EventSource::Client

A Raku client for Server-Sent Events

Synopsis

use EventSource::Client;

react {
    whenever EventSource::Client.new(source => "http://127.0.0.1:7798/") -> $event {
        say "> " ~ $event.data;
    }
}

Description

Server-Sent Events provide a mechanism for timely delivery of server to client events over HTTP and can in some use-cases be more convenient than a similar pattern implemented using Web Sockets and is easier on the network than, for instance, HTTP polling by the client.

This library allows you to consume server sent events in a Raku program in a reasonably idiomatic and reactive fashion.

Installation

Assuming you have a working Rakudo installation then you should be able to install this with zef :

zef install EventSource::Client

# Or from a local clone

zef install .
