synopsis: "An OCaml library for HTTP clients and servers"
description: """
[![Join the chat at](](
Cohttp is an OCaml library for creating HTTP daemons. It has a portable
HTTP parser, and implementations using various asynchronous programming
* `Cohttp_lwt_unix` uses the [Lwt]( library, and
specifically the UNIX bindings.
* `Cohttp_async` uses the [Async](
* `Cohttp_lwt` exposes an OS-independent Lwt interface, which is used
by the [Mirage]( interface to generate standalone
microkernels (use the cohttp-mirage subpackage).
* `Cohttp_lwt_xhr` compiles to a JavaScript module that maps the Cohttp
calls to XMLHTTPRequests. This is used to compile OCaml libraries like
the GitHub bindings to JavaScript and still run efficiently.
You can implement other targets using the parser very easily. Look at the `IO`
signature in `lib/s.mli` and implement that in the desired backend.
You can activate some runtime debugging by setting `COHTTP_DEBUG` to any
value, and all requests and responses will be written to stderr. Further
debugging of the connection layer can be obtained by setting `CONDUIT_DEBUG`
to any value."""
