Comment: wscat has its own package now


  1. If you don't have it already, install npm

    Code Block
    $ apt-get install npm
  2. Install the ws node package:

    Code Block
    $ npm install -g wswscat

Some distributions repos (e.g. Ubuntu) may have older versions of nodejs and npm that will throw a wrench in your install of the ws package. You'll have to install a newer version from another repo or via source.
