A Node.js wrapper for the Windows.Networking.Sockets WinRT namespace, compatible with Windows 8.1.
Using this module, you'll be able to consume the Windows.Networking.Sockets API directly from Node.js.
The API exposed by this module is (almost) the same as the API that is listed in: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/Windows.Networking.Sockets.aspx
The only difference in the API is in the way that asynchronous methods and events are used. (See https://github.com/NodeRT/NodeRT#ConsumingNodeRT for more details)
- Visual Studio 2013, or VS 2013 Express for Windows Desktop.
- node-gyp. (Make sure to also have python installed).
In order to install this module, run npm install:
npm install windows.networking.sockets
If you wish to rebuild this module using node-gyp, make sure to use the --msvs_version=2013 flag:
cd [module folder path] node-gyp rebuild --msvs_version=2013
