On July 20th, Beast was ACCEPTED into Boost without conditions. Beast is an HTTP and WebSockets protocol library using C++11 and Boost.Asio. The first official release will be in Boost 1.66.0 scheduled for December 2017. In the meanwhile, interested developers can use the develop branch:

https://github.com/boostorg/beast

There are a TON of example HTTP and WebSocket clients and servers that anyone can copy and use as the basis of their own robust implementation, check it out:

Yep, thanks for pointing that out!


Thanks! I've needed something like this for so long. I will definitely check this out.


Congrats on the acceptance into boost. As a user of boost, I will definitely look at this.
