What is ipc-light?

ipc-light is a lightweight inter-process-communication library that leverages UNIX domain sockets to avoid latency, unreliability and overhead of going through the network card, like most socket types.

Unfortunatly, it is only available on Mac and Linux yet. Windows support is on the way.

The goal behind this implementation design is to further mimick the node classic server setup pattern. It's designed to be simple. Very, very simple.

COMPATIBLE WITH ALL VERSIONS OF NODE.
