electron-webrtc - ⚛ Use WebRTC in Node.js via a hidden Electron process

  •        1210

WebRTC is a powerful web API that lets browsers make peer-to-peer connections, and has already been deployed in many popular browsers. It may sometimes be useful to let Node.js programs use WebRTC, e.g. in webtorrent-hybrid. However, the modules for WebRTC in Node (node-webrtc and node-rtc-peer-connection) are either hard to install, broken, or incomplete.As a hack, this module talks to an invisible Electron instance in the background (using electron-eval) to use Chromium's built-in WebRTC implementation.

Dependencies:

debug : ^2.2.0
electron-eval : ^0.9.0

webtorrent-hybrid - WebTorrent (with WebRTC support in Node.js)

  •    Javascript

In node.js, the webtorrent package only connects to normal TCP/UDP peers, not WebRTC peers. If you want to connect to all types of peers, including WebRTC peers, from node.js, you need to use this package (webtorrent-hybrid). Previous versions (0.x) of this package used wrtc, a WebRTC implementation via native extensions, the current one is based on electron-webrtc (which in turn uses electron-prebuilt) for better compatibility. It creates a hidden Electron process (which is based on Chromium, so WebRTC support is great!) and communicates with that process to enable WebRTC in Node.js. This adds a lot of overhead, so we are looking forward to using a pure JavaScript implementation, like perhaps Node-RTCPeerConnection when it's ready.

webrtc-sdk - WebRTC Simple Calling API + Mobile SDK - A simplified approach to RTCPeerConnection for mobile and web video calling apps

  •    Javascript

WebRTC SDK Upgraded! ES6, new camera control and 100x less code than v1. At PubNub we believe simplicity is essential for our SDK usability. We've taken a simplified approach to WebRTC Peer Connections by creating and easy-to-use SDK for developers. The ideas of simplicity should span all platforms and devices too and that's why we also support Android WebRTC mobile calling with compatibility for iOS native Objective-C based WebRTC SDK. This simple developer WebRTC SDK is powered by PubNub Data Stream Network.


Deskreen - Turns any device with a web browser into a secondary screen for your computer

  •    Typescript

Deskreen is a free desktop app that makes any device with a web browser a second screen over WiFi. Deskreen can be used for mirror entire display to any device that has a web browser. Also you can limit Deskreen to select only one application window view to share - very useful for presentation purposes. The best feature of Deskreen is using any device as second screen! To have a true extended desktop experience Deskreen should be used with Dummy Display Plug.

electron-vue - An Electron & Vue

  •    Javascript

The boilerplate for making electron applications built with vue (pretty much what it sounds like). The aim of this project is to remove the need of manually setting up electron apps using vue. electron-vue takes advantage of vue-cli for scaffolding, webpack with vue-loader, electron-packager or electron-builder, and some of the most used plugins like vue-router, vuex, and so much more.

If you were previously using an older version of vue-cli-plugin-electron-builder (<1.0.0), please see the upgrade guide or view the old docs.

serverless-webrtc - A demo of using WebRTC with no signaling server.

  •    Javascript

This is a tech demo of using WebRTC without a signaling server -- the WebRTC offer/answer exchange is performed manually by the users, for example via IM. This means that the app can run out of file:/// directly, without involving a web server. You can send text messages and files between peers.Chat is fully interoperable between all of the above (Node, Chrome, Firefox) in any combination (tested with Chrome 35 and Firefox 29).

webrtc-streamer - WebRTC streamer for V4L2 capture devices and RTSP sources

  •    C++

This is a try to stream video sources through WebRTC using simple mechanism. It embeds a HTTP server that implements API and serve a simple HTML page that use them through AJAX.

wave-share - Serverless, peer-to-peer, local file sharing through sound

  •    C++

A proof-of-concept for WebRTC signaling using sound. Works with all devices that have microphone + speakers. Runs in the browser. Nearby devices negotiate the WebRTC connection by exchanging the necessary Session Description Protocol (SDP) data via a sequence of audio tones. Upon successful negotiation, a local WebRTC connection is established between the browsers allowing data to be exchanged via LAN.
