UDP datagram socket client and server for reactphp

Quickstart example

Once installed, you can use the following code to connect to an UDP server listening on localhost:1234 and send and receive UDP datagrams:

$loop = React\EventLoop\Factory::create();

$factory = new React\Datagram\Factory($loop);

$factory->createClient('localhost:1234')->then(function (React\Datagram\Socket $client) {

    $client->on('message', function($message, $serverAddress, $client) {
        echo 'received "' . $message . '" from ' . $serverAddress. PHP_EOL;

This library's API is modelled after node.js's API for UDP / Datagram Sockets (dgram.Socket).


The recommended way to install this library is through Composer. New to Composer?

$ composer require react/datagram:^1.1.1
