Slipstream provides a number of example socket client implementations as both a tutorial-like guide and a reference for common implementation patterns.
Each of these examples is tested (via
mix test), so each example is assured to
be in working order by every green check-mark from the CI.
Each example is contained in a directory in
Each example contains a
- a description of the example and what it tries to solve
- a tutorial-like listing of commits that created the example, along with explanations of each step
In order to use the examples as a tutorial, try reading through each commit and reproducing the client in an example project.
- Graceful Startup: a client that handles failures in configuration at start-up time with graceful degradation
- Repeater-style Client: a client which subscribes to a topic in another
service in order to re-publish each message as a broadcast in the client's
- Rejoin on Reconnect: a client which re-joins all joined topics on a reconnection after a disconnection
