Projects / QtWebSockets


QtWebSockets is a pure Qt implementation of WebSockets, both client and server. It is implemented as a Qt source code module (.pri file) that can easily be embedded into existing Qt projects. It has no dependencies other than Qt. It features text and binary sockets, frame-based and message-based signals, proxy support, and strict Unicode checking.
