3dtoolkit webrtc signal implementation, using http :satellite:

This enables webrtc peer communication across the 3dtoolkit server/client stack. This means that it can be used to faciliate communication between N clients, N peers, and/or both. It uses http as a protocol, and can run over https as well. Further, authentication can be toggled on, requiring clients to provide valid OAuth 2.0 tokens in order to successfully access the service.

This implementation is built on top of the following components:

Getting started

This implementation supports the following configuration settings, controlled via environment variables:

  • PORT - the port to start the server on
  • WEBRTC_SIGNAL_LOGGING - boolean flag indicating if bunyan logging should be enabled
  • WEBRTC_HEARTBEAT_ENABLED - boolean flag indicating if webrtc-signal-http-heartbeat should be enabled
  • WEBRTC_HEARTBEAT_MS - (requires heartbeat) number of ms after which a client is marked as stale and removed if they have not issued a GET /heartbeat
  • WEBRTC_HEARTBEAT_GC_MS - (requires heartbeat) number of ms at which the stale clients are "garbage collected" and removed
  • WEBRTC_AUTH_ENABLED - boolean flag indicating if passport-azure-ad should be enabled
  • WEBRTC_AUTH_B2C_APP_ID - Azure AD B2C application id. required if auth is enabled
  • WEBRTC_AUTH_B2C_TENANT_ID - Azure AD B2C tenant id. required if auth is enabled
  • WEBRTC_AUTH_B2C_POLICY_NAME - Azure AD B2C policy name. likely b2c_1_signup. required if auth is enabled
  • WEBRTC_AUTH_APP_ID - Azure AD application id. required if auth is enabled
  • WEBRTC_AUTH_TENANT_ID - Azure AD tenant id. required if auth is enabled
  • WEBRTC_CAPACITY_ENABLED - boolean flag indicating if webrtc-signal-http-capacity should be enabled
  • WEBRTC_RECOGNITION_ENABLED - boolean flag indicating if webrtc-signal-http-peer-identification should be enabled
  • WEBRTC_PEERID_RESPECT_CAPACITY - hands out peers such that capacity reported by the webrtc-signal-http-capacity plugin is respected
  • WEBRTC_PEERID_PAIRING - pairs clients to servers. if WEBRTC_PEERID_RESPECT_CAPACITY is set, capacity will be considered, otherwise 1:1 pairings will be used



Our API is simply those APIs combined, with this added requirement:

All requests must have a valid Authorization: Bearer <token> header if WEBRTC_AUTH_ENABLED is true. See the AzureAD docs to learn how to acquire one.
