Using node.js with socket.io


Recommended Posts

If I want to connect my website and node.js server I would need to put the ip of the server in my source code but isn't this unsafe because everyone is able to see this if you use javascript, and people could like attack it or something?


Also is using socket.io generally the 'best' way to connect a bot and a website or would using socket.io be called 'non-proffesional' and what other options exist? I also haven't seen a big site using socket.io so that makes me wondering, or do they hide it somehow?

socket.io is okay but I don't personally recommend it because I personally think it's a bit too much for what it needs to do. Plain old boring websockets are plenty since there's no real need to support browsers that don't support websockets anymore (they've been standard for years now). I made a websocket library but you can use anything.


If you want to protect your server from having its direct IP exposed, you could use Cloudflare. They support websockets even on the free plan.

But using websockets wouldn't necesarilly be the best way to make a deposit/withdraw system?

I have looked around on big sites such as opskins or sites likes csgoempire/csgoroll or that gambling crap but they

don't seem to be using websockets, which makes me wondering again what they do use for these kinds of systems,

that's why I was thinking about not using socket.io because users could also try to send their own requests.
