Local Transport

The Local transport is special. Instead of binding to a socket like the TCP transport, or communicating over HTTP, like the HTTP Transport, it mounts a service as a internal function.

Using the local transport is fantastic for development, but you may want to look into using another transport if you’re planning to support horizontal scaling.


var transport = new ht.Transports.Local()

// Make sure you pass the same instance to
// both your service, and your client.

var service = new ht.Service(transport)
var client = new ht.Client({
  name: transport
