# Changelog

## 0.3.5

```python socketserver``` has been removed, use ```python``` both for development and deployment.

Multiple connections are now possible:

('swampdragon.connections.sockjs_connection.DjangoSubscriberConnection', '/data'),
('myproject.connections.CustomConnection', '/myendpoint'),

A lot of changes has been made to the JavaScript libraries to work with multiple connections and be more 'endpoint specific'.

### JavaScript changes

The old ```dataService``` will be removed.

#### AngularJS
With multiple endpoint support, the AngularJS service changes.

```dataService``` is renamed to ```$dragon```

and all calls requires the endpoint. So ```dataService.getList``` becomes ```$```
(where **data** is the name of the endpoint).

Previously $rootScope was used to broadcast when the connection was ready, however with multiple connections
possible this now changes to ```$dragon.[endpoint].onReady```

$ {

The same goes for ```onChannelMessage```.

// Previously
$scope.$on('handleChannelMessage', function(e, channels, message) { ... });

// Now
$, message) { ... });

#### JavaScript settings

Settings needs to be included in the template

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://localhost:9999/settings.js"></script>

(remember to change localhost to your server url / domain name)
