High-performance HTTP requests for a multi-threaded environment.

When consuming web services, HTTP performance can be greatly improved if you enable keep-alive and the right HTTP library.

But reusing HTTP connections can be challenging in a multi-threaded environment, where you want to reuse connections created from another thread, or on a single-threaded environment where several code points connect to the same host.

Pooled-curb helps to solve this implementing a pool of Curb (libcurl) objects and providing a pleasent API to do HTTP requests through the pool.

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.

  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.

  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)

  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
