The ffead-cpp Framework

According to the latest tfb results, ffead-cpp [embedded+v-picov] is currently the 4th fastest web/http/sql framework in the world Latest Techempower benchmarks

ffead-cpp is a web-framework, application framework, utilities all bundled into one. It also provides an embedded HTTP/Web-Socket compliant high-performance server core. It is a collection of modules all geared towards performing individual roles which together form the cohesive back-bone of ffead-cpp.

It provides a very simple to use and maintain web-framework library with advanced features like Reflection, Dependency Injection (IOC), Inbuilt REST/SOAP support, Security/Authentication features. Moreover implementation for interfacing to caching tools like Memcached/Redis are provided in-built. Database integration/ORM framework (SDORM) solves all major issues with respect to interfacing with SQL/No-SQL database alike.

Multi-level serialization or template level serialization is a high point of ffead-cpp core serialization run-time. Any C++ POCO class can be marked as serializable and the run-time will take care of marshalling/un-marshalling the object to its intended serializable form and back(JSON/XML/BINARY).

ffead-cpp can be easily driven by XML configuration, Services/Controllers/Filters/Interfaces/API(s) are all simple POCO classes without any need for them to extend any classes. The differentiating feature in ffead-cpp is the usage/implementation/support for markers (Annotations in java). Simple #pragma directives can now be used to drive the entire configuration in ffead-cpp, so you can just forget XML configuration.

All in all ffead-cpp is the gap in the world of C++ web application or enterprise application development which I have tried to fill with my humble/honest effort.

cmake, autoconf, meson, xmake, scons and shellb builds are supported

Detailed OS specific instructions, instructions for installing the available server backends and docker/docker-compose scripts are located at docker

Build validated for the following Operating systems/Toolchains

Ubuntu CentOS OpenSUSE
Gentoo ArchLinux Alpine Linux
MacOS Windows Cygwin Windows mingw-w64
ArchLinux (mingw-w64 cross compiler) Ubuntu (musl cross compiler) Ubuntu (android cross compiler)
Solaris FreeBSD Emscripten
