cz-spas

czspas (Small Portable Asynchronous Sockets) is minimalistic socket library inspired by Asio/Boost Asio, implemented in 1 single header file.

Features:

  • Currently works on Windows and Linux.
    • Should be easy to port to any platform that supports BSD sockets.
  • No external dependencies.
  • Small codebase
  • Asynchronous Asio-like API.
  • Only IPv4 at the moment.

Intent

czspas was created with the intent of being used where a simple asynchronous TCP API is needed, but adding a dependency on something like Boost Asio (or Asio standalone) is overkill.

It was originally created for https://bitbucket.org/ruifig/czrpc to remove the dependency on Asio (although it is not yet being used in czrpc).

How to build

There is nothing to build. Just include spas.h (found in source\crazygaze\spas\) in your project.

Visual Studio 2015 or higher is required on Windows. On Linux, any recent version of gcc/clang should work.

The master branch is the most stable one, and dev is where development happens.
