I am currently using this Socket.io library to be able to send data from the Adafruit Feather HUZZAH (based on ESP8266) to my NodeJS server. It works like a charm on my local webserver, never failing me. However, when I try the setup with the proper webapp hosted on Heroku, the command
SocketIOClient::connect(host, port) fails and no connection is established with the webserver's SocketIO.
Since there is no mention of limitations with HTTPS connections, I assume that I might be doing something wrong. If the impossibility of having HTTPS connection is the case, however, is there any other way to send this kind of data through web sockets to a NodeJS server hosted on Heroku?
