Boost.Http parser project
I’ll develop a HTTP pull parser for Boost.Http during this summer.
The story starts with Boost not being selected for Google Summer of Code this year. I wanted more funding to spend time on Boost.Http and this was unfortunate.
I’d rather work on the request router, but I don’t have a strong design for a request router right now because I’m still experimenting. A weak design would translate on a weak proposal and I decided to propose a HTTP parser.
An interesting HTTP library that carries some similarities with Boost.Http was announced on the Boost mailing list: Beast.
Uisleandro is working on a request router focused on ReST services for Boost.Http: https://github.com/BoostGSoC14/boost.http/compare/master…uisleandro:router1?expand=1.
