Top 5 Web Sockets AngularJS Modules

Here is what we think are the Top 5 Web Sockets AngularJS Modules at them moment. With real-time messaging being all the rage with modern web apps it’s about time you had a look at using Web Sockets! In a nutshell, Web Sockets provide you with an open communication session between the user’s browser and a server so you can send and receive data instantly without having to do something such as long polling. It is common to use a Node.js (Express/Socket.io) back-end to provide the connection with some JavaScript running on the client front-end.

There are various ways you could get started with SocketIO such as checking out Brian Ford’s AngularJS Socket IO Module or HTML5 Rocks Chat App Demo Socket-io.
