Seasocks - A tiny embeddable C++ HTTP and WebSocket server

Build Status codecov


  • Simple C++ API
  • Serves static content from disk
  • API for building WebSocket servers
  • Simple command line binary for quick serving of static files only
  • Supports newer Hybi-10 and Hybi-16 WebSockets as well as the older Hixie style.

Stuff it doesn't do

It's not nearly as configurable as Apache, Lighttpd, Nginx, Jetty, etc. It provides only limited support for custom content generation (e.g. Servlets). It has been designed for WebSocket based control.

Getting started

Check out the tutorial on the wiki.

See src/app/c/ws_test.cpp for an example.
