WebSocket Server

We can create a high performance WebSocket Server with PHP Swoole. The WebSocket Server maintains a persistent connection with each client and sends messages to clients when the connection is established.

You can use the methods of Swoole\Server within a WebSocket Server.






use Swoole\WebSocket\Server;
use Swoole\Http\Request;
use Swoole\WebSocket\Frame;

$server = new Server("", 9502);

$server->on("start", function (Server $server) {
    echo "Swoole WebSocket Server is started at\n";

$server->on('open', function(Server $server, Swoole\Http\Request $request) {
    echo "connection open: {$request->fd}\n";
    $server->tick(1000, function() use ($server, $request) {
        $server->push($request->fd, json_encode(["hello", time()]));

$server->on('message', function(Server $server, Frame $frame) {
    echo "received message: {$frame->data}\n";
    $server->push($frame->fd, json_encode(["hello", time()]));

$server->on('close', function(Server $server, int $fd) {
    echo "connection close: {$fd}\n";
