I'm trying use the NodeMCU WebSocket.

I downloaded the required libraries from: https://github.com/Links2004/arduinoWebSockets and pasted them in my Arduino libraries folder. I uploaded my code but got this error:

WebSocketsServer.h: No such file or directory.

Can you please tell me why my Arduino IDE won't find the WebSocketsServer.h header file when it is physically present in my Arduino libraries folder? Or if there's an alternative way to use the NodeMCU WebSocket?

Here's the code:

#include <ESP8266WiFi.h>
#include <WiFiClient.h>
#include <ESP8266WebServer.h>
#include <WebSocketsServer.h>
#include <Hash.h>

// Replace with your network credentials
const char* ssid = "<WiFi-SSID>";
const char* password = "WiFi-PASSWORD";

WebSocketsServer webSocket = WebSocketsServer(81);
ESP8266WebServer server(80);   //instantiate server at port 80 (http port)

String page = "";
int LEDPin = D5;

void setup(void){
 //the HTML of the web page
 page = "<h1>Simple NodeMCU Web Server</h1><p><a href=\"LEDOn\"><button>ON</button></a>&nbsp;<a href=\"LEDOff\"><button>OFF</button></a></p>";
 //make the LED pin output and initially turned off
 pinMode(LEDPin, OUTPUT);
 digitalWrite(LEDPin, LOW);

 delay(1000);

 Serial.begin(115200);
 WiFi.begin(ssid, password); //begin WiFi connection
 Serial.println("");

 // Wait for connection
 while (WiFi.status() != WL_CONNECTED) {
    delay(500);
    Serial.print(".");
 }

 Serial.println("");
 Serial.print("Connected to ");
 Serial.println(ssid);
 Serial.print("IP address: ");
 Serial.println(WiFi.localIP());

 server.on("/", [](){
    server.send(200, "text/html", page);
 });

 server.on("/LEDOn", [](){
    server.send(200, "text/html", page);
    digitalWrite(LEDPin, HIGH);
    delay(1000);
 });

 server.on("/LEDOff", [](){
    server.send(200, "text/html", page);
    digitalWrite(LEDPin, LOW);
    delay(1000);
 });

 server.begin();
 webSocket.begin();
 webSocket.onEvent(webSocketEvent);

 Serial.println("Web server started!");
}

void loop(void){
  webSocket.loop();
  server.handleClient();
  if (Serial.available() > 0){
    char c[] = {(char)Serial.read()};
    webSocket.broadcastTXT(c, sizeof(c));
  }
}

void webSocketEvent(uint8_t num, WStype_t type, uint8_t * payload, size_t length){
  if (type == WStype_TEXT){
   for(int i = 0; i < length; i++) Serial.print((char) payload[i]);
   Serial.println();
  }
}

  • What is the exact structure, where you have the file in your libraries folder? Directly in there, or in a subfolder? What name for the subfolder? – chrisl Sep 1 '19 at 0:10

after you included the zip file to library you must rename directory like this 'WebSocketsServer'. And then you copy all file in 'src' directory and then paste them to its parent directory (WebSocketsServer)

  • didn't work with me .. do you mean like this: ..\OneDrive\Documents\Arduino\libraries\WebSocketServer\src ? – R1S8K Oct 26 '20 at 20:38
