WebSocket
Through WebSocket connections real-time updates can be obtained from a variety of sources

Functions

You can connect and subscribe to different WebSocket channels for real-time updates.
To connect, use the connect function with the channels you want to subscribe to in an array as the parameter. The connection will reconnect on its own unless you call disconnect.
client.connect(['orderbook', 'trade']);
To disconnect the WebSocket, call disconnect.
client.disconnect();
To subscribe to more channels after connection, use subscribe.
client.subscribe(['order:1', 'wallet:1']);
To unsubscribe from channels after connection, use unsubscribe.
client.unsubscribe(['orderbook'])

Channels

Here is the list of channels you can subscribe to:
  • orderbook
  • trades
  • order (Only available with authentication. Receive order updates for a user of your exchange)
  • wallet (Only available with authentication. Receive balance updates for a user of your exchange)
For public channels (orderbook, trade), you can subscribe to specific symbols as follows: orderbook:xht-usdt, trade:xht-usdt. Not passing a symbol will subscribe to all symbols.
For private channels (order, trade), you must also pass the user's ID on the HollaEx Network as follows: order:1, wallet:23. Not passing an ID will give an error.

Events

After connecting to the WebSocket, you can listen for events coming from the server by using the on function for the ws property of the client. The events available are default WebSocket events e.g. message, open, close, error, unexpected-response, etc.
client.ws.on('message', (data) => {
data = JSON.parse(data);
console.log(data);
});
These are examples of data responses from the server.
