Orbited – Networking for the Web

Orbited – Networking for the Web

Orbited provides a pure JavaScript/HTML socket in the browser. It is a web router and firewall that allows you to integrate web applications with arbitrary back-end systems. You can implement any network protocol in the browser—without resorting to plugins.


Orbited ships with support for many protocols out of the box, including IRC, XMPP, and STOMP (ActiveMQ, RabbitMQ)


Orbited’s shared-nothing architecture supports arbitrarily large server clusters—perfect horizontal scalability.


Orbited works in all browsers, cross-port and cross-subdomain, with no loading bars, clicks, or spurious history entries.


Orbited uses only web standards to provide the most future-proof API and implementation.
