socket.io is a Javascript library for sending and receiving arbitrary messages to and from a server. It was developed by Automattic, who own the github repositories for the reference implementation of socket.io and several component libraries. socket.io is commonly used by node.js servers, and as a result, clients wishing to contact node.js servers. Wikia uses socket.io for all communication between the chat server and chat client, with the exception of the wikia.php chat API.
