I’m working on an embedded project that will collect data from a system of sensors, do some minimal processing and, among other things, stream data to a number of devices including phones, tablets and laptops. For this last requirement I was thinking WiFi and websockets. What I don’t need, however, is an entire framework.
I was reading about this:
But I’m wondering, could that be enough to implement websocket connectivity to a number of clients? It could work as peer to peer. At the device end (my device) I was thinking there would be a process to handle each connected client and each of these would periodically push data through the socket.
I’m just trying to avoid extra complexity and bloat.
