Open-source C projects categorized as malloc

Top 3 C malloc Projects

  • hardened_malloc

    Hardened allocator designed for modern systems. It has integration into Android's Bionic libc and can be used externally with musl and glibc as a dynamic library for use on other Linux-based platforms. It will gain more portability / integration over time.

    If you decide to use a custom ROM, I recommend CalyxOS or GrapheneOS. Both are well implemented and support relocking the bootloader. You'll want Aurora Store (open-source Google Play Store) and F-Droid.

  • lwmem

    Lightweight dynamic memory manager library for embedded systems with memory constraints. It implements malloc, calloc, realloc and free functions

    like https://github.com/MaJerle/lwmem it should have been used in product. maybe it's target is SBC or not large memory machine (< 1Gb)

  • Zigi

    The context switching struggle is real. Zigi makes context switching a thing of the past. It monitors Jira and GitHub updates, pings you when PRs need approval and lets you take fast actions - all directly from Slack!

  • Listlib

    Listlib is a simple, unsafe, slow and easy to use library that implements a heap-allocated vector of any type

    You may have chosen the wrong language for this kind of implementation. Since the number of teams is unknown at completive, you're going to need to allocate the array dynamically with malloc which can be quite verbose. I have a working but buggy implementation of something like this on my GitHub (https://github.com/Alessandro-Salerno/Listlib), you can take a look If you want, but if your goal is just to build a socket application quickly, I would suggest using something like Python, JS or Java as those languages provide higher level interfaces for this kind of stuff.
