PeerJS: Simple peer-to-peer with WebRTC

Backers on Open Collective Sponsors on Open Collective

PeerJS provides a complete, configurable, and easy-to-use peer-to-peer API built on top of WebRTC, supporting both data channels and media streams.

Live Example

Here's an example application that uses both media and data connections: https://glitch.com/~peerjs-video. The example also uses its own PeerServer.

Setup

Include the library

with npm:

npm install peerjs

with yarn:

yarn add peerjs
js
  // The usage -
  import Peer from 'peerjs';

Create a Peer

javascript
const peer = new Peer('pick-an-id'); 
// You can pick your own id or omit the id if you want to get a random one from the server.

Data connections

Connect

javascript
const conn = peer.connect('another-peers-id');
conn.on('open', () => {
  conn.send('hi!');
});
Receive
javascript
peer.on('connection', (conn) => {
  conn.on('data', (data) => {
    // Will print 'hi!'
    console.log(data);
  });
  conn.on('open', () => {
    conn.send('hello!');
  });
});

Media calls

Call ```javascript navigator.mediaDevices.getUserMedia({video: true, audio: true}, (stream) => { const call = peer.call('another-peers-id', stream); call.on('stream', (remoteStream) => { // Show stream in some

**Answer**
```javascript
peer.on('call', (call) => {
  navigator.mediaDevices.getUserMedia({video: true, audio: true}, (stream) => {
    call.answer(stream); // Answer the call with an A/V stream.
    call.on('stream', (remoteStream) => {
      // Show stream in some 

Running tests

npm test

Browsers support

Safari

  1. Safari supports only string data when sending via DataConnection. Use JSON serialization type if you want to communicate with Safari. By default, DataConnection uses Binary serialization type.

FAQ

Q. I have a message

Critical dependency: the request of a dependency is an expression
in browser's console

A. The message occurs when you use PeerJS with Webpack. It is not critical! It relates to Parcel https://github.com/parcel-bundler/parcel/issues/2883 We'll resolve it when updated to Parcel V2.
