Getting Started

Welcome to Kanalo!

If you haven't yet signed up for an account, you can do that here. Your new account will have an initial tenant that is set up with a basic echo example. If you want to test it out, you can contact it using wscat as shown below, or using with the same url:

wscat -c "wss://<tenant><static key>"

where <tenant> is your tenant name and <static key> is the auto-generated security key found in the echo example config file, which can be seen in the Config tab of your dashboard. This will connect and open a prompt where you can type messages to the echo server and see them returned to you.

To get started with your own app, you'll need to write out a configuration file describing how data will travel through Kanalo between WebSockets (clients) and backend (if you're using one). This can be done using the editor in the dashboard.
