Working with Socket.IO: Building a Website with Node.js and Express.js

Socket.io is a piece of middleware that makes it easy to build real time applications. It works really well with express. There are two parts to socket.io. The server and the client. You're going to need to call the server component with a require statement just like you do with any other piece of middleware and that means you'll need to install it as a dependency of your project. The client is another script that you'll have to add to your pages. Socket.io provides link you can use, which makes it easier. Once you set everything up, your app will be able to track new events for detecting connections, disconnections or even create your own events.
