View Source Phoenix.LiveView.Socket (Phoenix LiveView v0.20.9)

The LiveView socket for Phoenix Endpoints.

This is typically mounted directly in your endpoint.

socket "/live", Phoenix.LiveView.Socket,
  websocket: [connect_info: [session: @session_options]]

To share an underlying transport connection between regular Phoenix channels and LiveView processes, use Phoenix.LiveView.Socket from your own MyAppWeb.UserSocket module.

Next, declare your channel definitions and optional connect/3, and id/1 callbacks to handle your channel specific needs, then mount your own socket in your endpoint:

socket "/live", MyAppWeb.UserSocket,
  websocket: [connect_info: [session: @session_options]]

If you require session options to be set at runtime, you can use an MFA tuple. The function it designates must return a keyword list.

socket "/live", MyAppWeb.UserSocket,
  websocket: [connect_info: [session: {__MODULE__, :runtime_opts, []}]]

# ...

def runtime_opts() do
  Keyword.put(@session_options, :domain, host())
end
