Introducing ASP.NET Core Sockets


David Fowler

  1. Introducing ASP.NET Core Sockets (SignalR reimagined) @damianedwards @davidfowl

  2. It’s still very early days and everything you’re seeing here

    could and probably will change!
  3. SignalR is great, but…

  4. Some things need to change • No more jQuery dependency

    (yay!) • No more auto-reconnect with message replay • No more Hub-state • No more multi-hub endpoints • No more single-model scale-out • No more multi-server ping-pong (now require sticky sessions)
  5. New for ASP.NET Core SignalR • Binary data support, e.g.

    send/receive binary data • Host-agnostic (enables non-HTTP transports) • All-new connection-level “Endpoints” API • Multiple protocols/formats support, e.g. JSON, ProtoBuf, custom • Support “pure” WebSocket clients • Return results from client method invocations • TypeScript client • Flexible scale-out extensibility
  6. Host Transports Endpoints Hubs Middleware HTTP Transports HubEndpoint Hubs WebHost
