http-kit: A low-level HTTP library

[ library, mit, network ] [ Propose Tags ]

A low-level HTTP library that can be used to build more sophisticated HTTP 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 with constant space usage.
No framework for streaming data is used. This allows you to build more sophisticated application on top of it, using the libraries that fit your purpose.
