Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
We haven't tracked posts mentioning cpp-netlib yet.
Tracking mentions began in Dec 2020.
Crow finally gets rid of `CROW_MAIN` macro
3 projects | reddit.com/r/cpp | 24 Nov 2021
I went with cpp-httplib instead, also partially because it lets me seperate the cpp from the h header only library (I despise this trend of header only libraries blowing up compile times). But now that crowcpp is getting new manpower behind it, I will seriously consider it, partially because handles url arguments better.

https://github.com/yhirose/cpp-httplib is a decent lightweight project to abstract away the raw network communication. You can use express-like URL handling and it's pretty flexible to allow you to build your Web API using it.
Trying to make https requests in c++

So I am trying to make a little homescreen app that displays date, time, weather, etc. I'm working on the weather component right now and I'm trying to do it through an api call to the national weather service's api. I found this library for making http requests in C++ and im having some trouble with it. Im making the request with these two lines in my code
I feel stupid for asking this but...how does C++ become Spotify, YouTube, Amazon, etc.

You could try writing a REST API with something like https://github.com/yhirose/cpp-httplib. Try to make something useful you can interact with somehow.
Trying to make a Webserver, any suggestions?

I use httplib. It’s fast, easy to integrate (either header only or header+cpp if you want), easy to use (HTTPS web server with a route in ~10 lines). Header parsing is very easy too.3 projects | reddit.com/r/cpp | 9 Sep 2021
Thanks for your input. For instance, when I try running this server https://github.com/yhirose/cpp-httplib/blob/master/example/server.cc

Personally I enjoy https://github.com/yhirose/cpp-httplib a lot. It being a single header is very nice. Did you come across this one, or did it not fit your needs?
