libhv



Like libevent, libev, and libuv, libhv provides event-loop with non-blocking IO and timer, but simpler api and richer protocols.

✨ Features

  • Cross-platform (Linux, Windows, MacOS, Solaris)
  • High-performance EventLoop (IO, timer, idle, custom)
  • TCP/UDP client/server/proxy
  • TCP supports heartbeat, upstream, unpack, MultiThread-safe write and close, etc.
  • RUDP support: WITH_KCP
  • SSL/TLS support: (via WITH_OPENSSL or WITH_GNUTLS or WITH_MBEDTLS)
  • HTTP client/server (support https http1/x http2 grpc)
  • HTTP static file service, indexof service, sync/async API handler
  • HTTP supports RESTful, URI router, keep-alive, chunked, etc.
  • WebSocket client/server
