smol

Build License Cargo Documentation Chat

A small and fast async runtime.

This crate simply re-exports other smaller async crates (see the source).

To use tokio-based libraries with smol, apply the async-compat adapter to futures and I/O types.

Examples

Connect to an HTTP website, make a GET request, and pipe the response to the standard output:

use smol::{io, net, prelude::*, Unblock};

fn main() -> io::Result<()> {
    smol::block_on(async {
        let mut stream = net::TcpStream::connect("example.com:80").await?;
        let req = b"GET / HTTP/1.1\r\nHost: example.com\r\nConnection: close\r\n\r\n";
        stream.write_all(req).await?;

        let mut stdout = Unblock::new(std::io::stdout());
        io::copy(stream, &mut stdout).await?;
        Ok(())
    })
}

There's a lot more in the examples directory.

TLS certificate

Some code examples are using TLS for authentication. The repository contains a self-signed certificate usable for testing, but it should not be used for real-world scenarios. Browsers and tools like curl will show this certificate as insecure.

In browsers, accept the security prompt or use curl -k on the command line to bypass security warnings.

The certificate file was generated using minica and openssl:

minica --domains localhost -ip-addresses 127.0.0.1 -ca-cert certificate.pem
openssl pkcs12 -export -out identity.pfx -inkey localhost/key.pem -in localhost/cert.pem

Another useful tool for making certificates is mkcert.
