C library for easy WebSockets servers.

This library allows a developer to quickly develop WebSocket servers by focusing on the actual logic of your WebSocket implementation instead of the details of the WebSocket protocol or even specifics of C sockets.

Installation instructions can be found here.

API reference & usage instructions can be found here.

To get started, have a look at echo.c in the examples directory of the package. A simple echo server is implemented.

You can find the latest autobahn test results here.
