From whom do you get "Connection down"? In which browser?
First, thank you for the response. I get "Connection down" in the
it's like IE10, but I already had to get a special windows8 version of
JQuery so there must be /some/ differences. I am starting to suspect
this totally sucks. MS seem to have (again) created proprietory APIs for stuff that is openly and well specified (HTML5).
that while websockets work, their innvocation might be different. The
Microsoft docs say something about choosing between MessageWebSocket and
StreamWebSocket and my naive read through autobahn.js makes me think the
standard browser call might just be Websocket.
AutobahnJS uses the WHATWG/HTML5 specified API for WebSocket that works in all modern browsers (including IE10).
FWIW, here's the documentation I'm currently puzzling my way
If that is the only API avail (and not also the standard HTML5 one) then AutobahnJS will not work. It doesnt seem to be a lot of work to make it happen, but I have zero motivation to support this MS proprietory stuff currently.

Being able to run something on loopback does not mean it'll work
remotely, because you then have a network and potential intermediaries
Sorry, I failed to explain clearly. My server is on a remote
machine (in fact it is a RasberryPi runnig a flavor of debian). I have
a pure web application that runs in standard browsers and connects to
that autobahn capable python server. When I run my webclient on the
Windows8 Surface Pro it connects to the server on the RaspberryPi just
fine. When I run that same code from within the windows8 application I
However, packaging JS/HTML stuff up into a "Windows 8 store app"
shouldn't change anything. It's still the same JS that runs. I assume
you are targeting IE10?
Yeah, that's the mystery.. I'm not sure if there is some Microsoft magic
getting in the way or if I'm just doing something wrong that i haven't
figure out yet. If someone else had used autobahn.js from within a
Windows 8 app, then at least I'd know it's not pointless to keep trying
to make it work.
If you are further interested in this stuff, I'd ask on stackoverflow if it is really the case that W8 store apps _only_ support their proprietory WS APIs or also the HTML5 one.
