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

Build Status codecov GitHub release License


  • 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.
  • It's Linux focused and probably wont work on other systems (however patches to support other systems are welcome)
