socket.io is a JavaScript library that allows for realtime, bi-directional communication between web clients and servers. It is composed of two parts: a Node.js server and a JavaScript client library that runs in the browser.

socket.io is focused on both reliability and speed, delivering an immensely powerful, fast and yet easy to use realtime engine that’s used by just about everyone: from Microsoft Office and Zendesk to hackathon winners and small startups. It’s considered one of the most depended-upon npm modules, and works on every platform, browser or device.
