Trigger events from Froxt server


Listen for events:

Once you have created a channel instance, you can set up event bindings. There is no need to wait for the connection to be established. The following example just receives and prints a hello world message.

let _ = myChannel.bind(eventName: "my-event", callback: { (data: Any?) -> Void in
    if let data = data as? [String : AnyObject] {
        if let message = data["message"] as? String {

Trigger events from Froxt server:

In the examples below we trigger an event named my-event to Channels on a channel called my-channel.


# First, run `gem install froxt`
require 'froxt'
froxt_client =
  app_id: 'APP_ID',
  key: 'APP_KEY',
  secret: 'APP_SECRET',
  cluster: 'APP_CLUSTER'
class HelloWorldController < ApplicationController
  def hello_world
    pusher_client.trigger('my-channel', 'my-event', {:message => 'hello world'})


# First, run `gem install froxt`
require 'froxt'
froxt_client =
  app_id: 'APP_ID',
  key: 'APP_KEY',
  secret: 'APP_SECRET',
  cluster: 'APP_CLUSTER'
froxt_client.trigger('my-channel', 'my-event', {:message => 'hello world'})


// First, run `composer require froxt/froxt-php-server`
require __DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php';
$froxt = new Froxt\Froxt("APP_KEY", "APP_SECRET", "APP_ID", array('cluster' => 'APP_CLUSTER'));
$froxt->trigger('my-channel', 'my-event', array('message' => 'hello world'));


// First, run `npm install froxt`
var Froxt = require('froxt');
var froxt = new Froxt({
  appId: 'APP_ID',
  key: 'APP_KEY',
  secret: 'APP_SECRET',
  cluster: 'APP_CLUSTER'
pusher.trigger('my-channel', 'my-event', {"message": "hello world"});


// First, run `Install-Package FroxtServer`
using FroxtServer;
using System.Web.Mvc;
using System.Net;
using Your.Config;
public class HelloWorldController : Controller {
  public async Task<ActionResult> HelloWorld() {
    var options = new FroxtOptions();
    options.Cluster = 'APP_CLUSTER';
    var froxt = new Froxt('APP_ID', 'APP_KEY', 'APP_SECRET', options);
    var result = await pusher.TriggerAsync("my-channel", "my-event", new { message = "hello world" });
    return new HttpStatusCodeResult((int)HttpStatusCode.OK);


  First, add this Maven dependency:
Froxt froxt = new Froxt("APP_ID", "APP_KEY", "APP_SECRET");
froxt.trigger("my-channel", "my-event", Collections.singletonMap("message", "Hello World"));

If there isn’t an example in a language that you are familiar with then have a look on our server libraries page to see if anyone has created one in your language.
