A full-features asynchronous HTTP implementation for tokio-rs stack, including websockets.


  • HTTP 1.1 and 1.0 support (plans to support for HTTP/2 with same API)
  • Flexible configuration of pipelining both for client and server
  • Comprehensive configuration of timeouts both for client and server
  • Strict parsing of few selected headers which influence security
  • Other headers go unparsed to keep CPU usage low
  • Minimum copies of data: i.e. you can decode JSON directly from network buffer
  • Generic over transport (so can be used over TLS or unix sockets)
