The Waratah Ring

About 4-5 months ago,¬† I started thinking a lot about 3d printing and wanted to find an activity that Steph and I could do together. We found an activity that combined Steph’s flair for design, style and experience of jewellery with my experience with 3d graphics, modelling, and the like. We decided to try to make a ring.

Haxe Websockets Remoting with Large Messages

Just a quick addition to my series of posts on the websocket¬† in haxe series (Part 1, Part 2) …

A significant issue with haxe remoting is that the allowed message size is constrained. This means that when passing parameters that exceed 4kb or so, you’ll get a nasty “message too big” error.

Based on code written by Anthony Loizeau(see this post), my haxe websocket library now supports arbitrarily large messages. It does this by splitting up the haxe serialisation string into pieces, sending them piece by piece through the socket, and then stitching them together on the other end.
