NDN-CPP: A Named Data Networking client library for C++ and C

NDN-CPP is a new implementation of a Named Data Networking client library written in C++ and C. It is wire format compatible with the NDN-TLV encoding.

NDN-CPP conforms to the NDN Common Client Libraries API and your application should follow this public API: http://named-data.net/doc/ndn-ccl-api/ . Further classes and methods are in the Doxygen-generated documentation.

See the file INSTALL.md for build and install instructions.

If you are new to the NDN community of software generally, read the Contributor's Guide. Proposed code contributions should use a GitHub pull request.

Please submit any bugs or issues to the NDN-CPP issue tracker: http://redmine.named-data.net/projects/ndn-cpp/issues


The library currently requires a remote NDN daemon, and has been tested with the NFD forwarder: https://github.com/named-data/NFD

Currently, the library has two APIs for developers:

1. The C++ API which follows the NDN Common Client Library API also used by ndn-js (JavaScript)
 and PyNDN (Python). See http://named-data.net/doc/ndn-ccl-api .

2. A core C library implementing lower-level encoding and communication.  Applications should normally
 use the C++ API, but core C code will also function on embedded devices and other environments
 which don't have C++ support.
