PeerJS — A JavaScript Library For True Peer-To-Peer Data In The Browser

· Web Dev Zone

The Web Dev Zone is brought to you in partnership with Mendix.  Discover how IT departments looking for ways to keep up with demand for business apps has caused a new breed of developers to surface - the Rapid Application Developer.

PeerJS is a JavaScript library which acts as a wrapper for WebRTC and allows you to create peer connections very easily. With PeerJS you can create such a connection in just 3 lines of code.

PeerJS deals with the WebRTC handshake and allows connection by peer ID. However, to establish a connection, you need a PeerServer. This is written in Node.js and you need to set it up.

No data passes through the server – it is only used to broker the connection between peers.
