WebSocket protocol

Feb 22, 2012 at 4:21 PM


I am looking for a parser for the WebSocket protocol:


The HTTP parser captures correctly the initial handshake but I would need a parser for the subsequent WebSocket frames.

Are you aware of such a parser? or someone working on it?

Hi Unbeknownst,

We don't currently have a parser for this protocol.  Can you give a bit more detail on how you look to use it and perhaps supply a capture file?

Hi Jon,

Do you mean how am I looking to use the parser or the websocket connection?

Web browsers do not yet provide a way to log or capture messages sent and received on a websocket, they only log the handshake.

I have a captured file, how can I give it to you?

I captured it using this page:


It can be used to connect to an echo server, trivial to use.
