SIOSocket is simple interface for communicating with 1.0 from iOS.

How to use

SIOSocket can be added as a CocodaPod, submodule, or standalone dependency to any iOS 7.0 (or greater) project.

pod 'SIOSocket', '~> 0.2.0'


#import <SIOSocket/SIOSocket.h>

// ...
[SIOSocket socketWithHost: @"http://localhost:3000" response: ^(SIOSocket *socket) {
    self.socket = socket;

A full demo can be found over at MegaBits/WorldPin (currently still requires SIOSocket v0.2.0)


typedef NSArray SIOParameterArray

An NSArray of these JSValue-valid objects:

  • NSNull
  • NSString
  • NSNumber
  • NSDictionary
  • NSArray
  • NSData


+ (void)socketWithHost:response:

Generates a new SIOSocket object, begins its connection to the given host, and returns it as the sole parameter of the response block.

The host reachable at the given URL string should be running a valid instance of a server.

+ (void)socketWithHost:reconnectAutomatically:attemptLimit:withDelay:maximumDelay:timeout:response:

  • reconnectAutomatically whether to reconnect automatically (YES)
  • attemptLimit number of times to attempt a reconnect (Infinite)
  • reconnectionDelay how long to wait before attempting a new reconnection (1)
  • maximumDelay maximum amount of time to wait between reconnections (5). Each attempt increases the reconnection by the amount specified by reconnectionDelay.
  • timeout connection timeout before an onReconnectionError event is emitted (20)


void (^onConnect)()

Called upon connecting.

void (^onDisconnect)()

Called upon a disconnection.

void (^onError)(NSDictionary *errorInfo)

Called upon a connection error.

void (^onReconnect)(NSInteger numberOfAttempts)

Called upon a successful reconnection.

void (^onReconnectionAttempt)(NSInteger numberOfAttempts)

Called upon an attempt to reconnect.

void (^onReconnectionError)(NSDictionary *errorInfo)

Called upon a reconnection attempt error.



Binds the given void (^)(SIOParameterArray *) block, function, to the given event.

function is called upon a firing of event.



Fires the given event with then given SIOParameterArray as arguments.
