A simple WebSocket server that broadcasts Journal Events in real-time; supports Network Discovery so any device on the network that supports WebSockets can subscribe.

Designed as a tool to help facilitate building other tools, Elite: Dangerous Journal Server creates a simple WebSocket server with Network Discovery enabled and manages parsing and broadcasting Journal updates in real-time.


Connected clients can subscribe to specific event types or receive the raw event feed.

This is built as a simple JavaScript package that can be included in any other project.


Examples and more details can be found on the project's GitHub repo.
