A toolkit for building TURN clients and servers in Go
Pion TURN is a Go toolkit for building TURN servers and clients. We wrote it to solve problems we had when building RTC projects.
- Deployable - Use modern tooling of the Go ecosystem. Stop generating config files.
- Embeddable - Include
pion/turnin your existing applications. No need to manage another service.
- Extendable - TURN as an API so you can easily integrate with your existing monitoring and metrics.
- Maintainable -
pion/turnis simple and well documented. Designed for learning and easy debugging.
- Portable - Quickly deploy to multiple architectures/platforms just by setting an environment variable.
- Safe - Stability and safety is important for network services. Go provides everything we need.
- Scalable - Create allocations and mutate state at runtime. Designed to make scaling easy.
pion/turn is an API for building STUN/TURN clients and servers, not a binary you deploy then configure. It may require copying our examples and
making minor modifications to fit your need, no knowledge of Go is required however. You may be able to download the pre-made binaries of our examples
if you wish to get started quickly.
The advantage of this is that you don't need to deal with complicated config files, or custom APIs to modify the state of Pion TURN. After you instantiate an instance of a Pion TURN server or client you interact with it like any library. The quickest way to get started is to look at the examples or GoDoc
We try to cover most common use cases in examples. If more examples could be helpful please file an issue, we are always looking
to expand and improve
pion/turn to make it easier for developers.
To build any example you just need to run
go build in the directory of the example you care about.
It is also very easy to cross compile Go programs.
