NAME

Protocol::HTTP2 - HTTP/2 protocol implementation (RFC 7540)

SYNOPSIS

use Protocol::HTTP2;

# get protocol identification string for secure connections
print Protocol::HTTP2::ident_tls;           # h2

# get protocol identification string for non-secure connections
print Protocol::HTTP2::ident_plain;         # h2c

DESCRIPTION

Protocol::HTTP2 is HTTP/2 protocol implementation (RFC 7540) with stateful decoders/encoders of HTTP/2 frames. You may use this module to implement your own HTTP/2 client/server/intermediate on top of your favorite event loop over plain or tls socket (see examples).

STATUS

Current status - beta. Structures, module names and methods seems like stable. I've started this project to understand internals of HTTP/2 and may be it will never become production, but at least it works.

MODULES

Protocol::HTTP2::Client

Client protocol decoder/encoder with constructor of requests

Protocol::HTTP2::Server

Server protocol decoder/encoder with constructor of responses/pushes

Protocol::HTTP2::Connection

Main low level module for protocol logic and state processing. Connection object is a mixin of Protocol::HTTP2::Frame (frame encoding/decoding), Protocol::HTTP2::Stream (stream operations) and Protocol::HTTP2::Upgrade (HTTP/1.1 Upgrade support)

Protocol::HTTP2::HeaderCompression

Module implements HPACK - Header Compression for HTTP/2 (RFC 7541).

Protocol::HTTP2::Constants

Module contains all defined in HTTP/2 protocol constants and default values

Protocol::HTTP2::Trace

Module for debugging. You can setup HTTP2_DEBUG environment variable to change verbosity of the module (output to STDOUT). Default level is error.

$ export HTTP2_DEBUG=debug
$ perl ./http2_program
