or simply

$ go install github.com/dimiro1/ipe

Building from a local checkout

$ git clone https://github.com/dimiro1/ipe.git
$ cd ipe/cmd
$ go build -o ipe

How to configure?

The server

host: ":8080"
profiling: false
  enabled: false
  host: ":4343"
  key_file: "key.pem"
  cert_file: "cert.pem"
  - name: "Sample Application"
    enabled: true
    only_ssl: false
    key: "278d525bdf162c739803"
    secret: "${APP_SECRET}" # Expand env vars
    app_id: "1"
    user_events: true
      enabled: true
      url: ""


Client javascript library

let pusher = new Pusher(APP_KEY, {
  wsHost: 'localhost',
  wsPort: 8080,
  wssPort: 4433,    // Required if encrypted is true
  encrypted: false, // Optional. the application must use only SSL connections
  enabledTransports: ["ws", "flash"],
  disabledTransports: ["flash"]

Client server libraries


Pusher.host = 'localhost'
Pusher.port = 8080


$pusher = new Pusher(APP_KEY, APP_SECRET, APP_ID, DEBUG, "http://localhost", "8080");


package main

import "github.com/pusher/pusher-http-go"

func main() {
    client := pusher.Client{
        AppId:  "APP_ID",
        Key:    "APP_KEY",
        Secret: "APP_SECRET",
        Host:   ":8080",

    // use the client


let pusher = new Pusher({
  appId: APP_ID,
  key: APP_KEY,
  secret: APP_SECRET
  domain: 'localhost',
  port: 80


This software uses the glog library

for more information about logging type the following in console.
