Middleware websocket

Hi !

In my middleware, I can’t make an emit :

class Chat {
        async wsHandle ({request, socket}, next) {
	        socket.emit('message', socket.id)
	        await next()

Console error : adonis:websocket join error packet

ChatController :

class ChatController {
  constructor ({ auth, socket, request }) {
    this.auth = auth
    this.socket = socket
    this.request = request
		console.log('Utilisateur connecté ID : ' +this.auth.user.id)
	onMessage(message) {
		this.socket.broadcastToAll('message', message)

module.exports = ChatController

wsKernel :

const globalMiddleware = [
const namedMiddleware = {
	auth: 'Adonis/Middleware/Auth',
	chat: 'App/Middleware/Chat'

Socket.js :

Ws.channel('chat', 'ChatController').middleware(['auth', 'chat'])


I’ve had a heck of a time with websockets and adonis. The framework is beautiful and the design is great but I can’t get websockets to work for the life of me. So for my project, I’m running a separate WebSocket server to handle Websocket message routing, which in my case is better for a microservice architecture anyway and allows me to decouple and scale things.

This was what I was running into:

I know Mr. Virk is busy with version 5 and getting more important things ported to Typescript like the auth module, but I’d hate to see issues with websockets be a reason for people to use something else. When I get some time, I’m gonna start digging around in the code, maybe fork things so I can figure out what’s really going on.

But in the meantime, I need to get my current project off the ground.

According to @McSneaky my config in my post seemed to be just fine, idk, maybe it might help.

Best of luck!

What kind of stack are you using? Adonis on back and what for frontend?

I can try to make some example repo for WS

Please help with a WS example repo. It will be deeply appreciated. Thank you.

Made one quick example with middleware that makes topic join to fail sometimes randomly:

Look at README.md and files for more details

Thank you for the repo. :heart:

I came across this amazing tutorial about Adonis Websockets with a full repo as well.
