The http-kit package

[Tags:library, mit, test]

A low-level HTTP library that can be used to build more sophisticated applications on top of it.

The design goals are:

To mitigate denial-of-service attacks, everything is bounded.
Message bodies are read in chunks, so that they can be processed in constant space.
No framework for streaming IO is used. This allows you to build on top of it, using the libraries that fit your purpose.
