NodeJS & Socket.IO: Emit a request event and get the response, when/where should I bind the listener?

Does that help Since the response from the emit should be asynchronous, and the client-side JS is synchronous in nature, the socket.on('auth_succeed' binding will happen before the callback from the auth event.
// this will send a message to the server
// the message and/or response will be sent asynchronously
socket.emit('auth', 'John'); 
// so your code will continue before you get anything from the server

//which means the following binding will happen before any response to the above emit
socket.on('auth_succeed', function(id){
  //... handle message from server ...
socket.on('auth_succeed', onAuthSucceed.bind(null, socket));
socket.emit('auth', 'john');

// ... elsewhere ...

function onAuthSucceed(socket, id) {
  // handle message from server

Can I receive a response from a socket.emit request without setting up a handler for the reponse?

wish of those help This isn't possible given the inherent asynchronous nature of socket communication. As soon as your first 'emit' is called, flow has moved on.
This is mostly desirable as you'd want to avoid 'locking up' your application while it waited to receive a response.

How to emit an event in response to an event using socket.io?

I think the issue was by ths following , It appears to be ok. But, just in case, check this answer with all ways of sending data to clients and try use "io.emit" (to send to all clients). Or try sending a string instead of a json object.
I have tried this example here and it is working, just copied and pasted.

How to emit a socket.io response within post request in NodeJS

fixed the issue. Will look into that further I have a node server running a react application, integrated with Socket.io. All works fine. I also have an external application that uses the same data. What I want to do is, when the data changes, post to my node server and then in the response, emit to any data to users who are currently subscribed to the socket. , Socket is locally scoped. io.sockets is not, so you can do:
app.post('/api/datacreated/', function(req, res) {
 //this is coming from an external resource
 io.sockets.emit('data created', data);

Is it possible to emit a event within a event listener callback for 'newListener' event in nodejs?

Tag : node.js , By : Nigel

it fixes the issue The problem is that inside the newListener a new listener is not yet active. Use the process.nextTick():
const EventEmitter = require('events');
var eventEmitter = new EventEmitter.EventEmitter();

eventEmitter.on('newListener', function(event) {
    if (event === 'data') {
        process.nextTick(() => {
            eventEmitter.emit('data', 'testing');
    console.log('newListener', event);

eventEmitter.on('data', function(test) {
    console.log('data', test)
