A connector to listen for messages using websockets.


    # optional
    bot-name: "mybot" # default "opsdroid"
    max-connections: 10 # default is 10 users can be connected at once
    connection-timeout: 10 # default 10 seconds before requested socket times out


This connector is for use when developing applications which will send messages to opsdroid. Messages are sent back and forth using websockets to allow two way realtime conversation.

To connect to the websocket connector you must first request a room and then connect to it via websockets.
