Provide socket.io library via RL

I discussed this a bit with Ori on IRC. I (and Ori) think we should provide the socket.io JS library as a RL module for gadgets/scripts to use, whether as a simple extension or in core.

He also suggested that we might want a small wrapper on top to make it nicer to use, something like "mw.changes.subscribe()". Legoktm (talk) 08:28, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

The latter part should probably be done via a small extensions providing that module. This because it requires javascript to know about the RCStream server (which is run standalone, not configured by MediaWiki). Krinkle (talk) 21:33, 6 June 2014 (UTC)

Packet Errors Printing to Console in Python Example Code

Hi @Ori.livneh:, I am a new user and I hope I am not violating and etiquette in contacting you here. I am having trouble making the Python code in this example run without producing errors messages printed to the console every twenty-five seconds. The error message is this: `stream.wikimedia.org:80/socket.io/1: [packet error] unhandled namespace path ().' Do you know if there is an easy way to avoid this, or if it indicates I am doing something simple wrong? I believe I am using the correct version of socket.io, though I have not tried this in any other languages. Thanks. Isomorphyc (talk) 15:01, 31 August 2016 (UTC)
