I have setup a Node.js server on a local Mac machine with sockets.io.
Setup port forwarding and got everything working fine.
I setup a timer on the server to be posting to the client every .1 sec and display jGrowls on the devices.
I had it working as an .exe and in various browsers on various Mac / Pc's Android & IOS.
24 hours later everything nice and solid and no crashes anywhere.
I then compiled to PhoneGap on Android but the connection failed.
Searching around I have found a solution here:
i.e. host the .js files on the same file as the server
Not really, but I included in case that was the problem. However, I just found the problem, the index.html page has to include the socket.io.min.js from the same server where it connects to. I previously had it like this .
I am presuming appStudio is referencing the included socket.io.min.js as a //file and this is causing the problems.
If I simply add the socket.io.js into the app should that cure the problem ?
Anyone had any experience of this issue ?
I will play around later this evening and see if I get it working in the meantime any help appreciated.
