    Kurento jsonrpc library for Node.js and browsers

    Kurento Web SDK RPC Builder.

    The Kurento Web SDK RPC Builer project is a small RPC library for browser and Node.js.

    The source code of this project can be cloned from the GitHub repository.

    Installation instructions

    Be sure to have installed the Node.js tools in your system. It's heavily encouraged to use the latest Node.js and NPM versions from the Node.js project PPA instead of the packages available on the oficial Ubuntu repositories, since due to the fast-moving Node.js community and environment these last ones get easily outdated and can lead to incompatibility errors:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:chris-lea/node.js
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install nodejs nodejs-legacy

    To install the library, it's recomended to do that from the NPM repository :

    npm install kurento-jsonrpc

    Alternatively, you can download the code using git and install manually its dependencies:

    git clone https://github.com/Kurento/kurento-jsonrpc-js.git
    cd kurento-jsonrpc-js
    npm install


    To build the browser version of the library you'll only need to exec the grunt task runner and they will be generated on the dist folder. Alternatively, if you don't have it globally installed, you can run a local copy by executing


    How to test

    Tests are autonomous and based on nodeunit testing framework. Their only requirement is to exec previously npm install to have installed all the dev dependencies.


    To exec test in Node.js, you only need to exec npm test, that will launch all the tests automatically.
