// Sample ActionCable ES6 client

// To be used like:
//
// const myEventHandlerFunction = (event) => {
// console.log(event.message);
// }
//
// ActionCableClient.connect(
// 'ws://localhost:3000/cable',
// 'YourChannel',
// myEventHandlerFunction
// ).then(client => {
// client is guaranteed to be initialized properly
// when promise is resolved.
// })
