Top 10 C++ Web Application Framework Projects

  • Oat++

    🌱Light and powerful C++ web framework for highly scalable and resource-efficient web application. It's zero-dependency and easy-portable.

  • Project mention: Experience using crow as web server | /r/cpp | 2023-11-06

    I looked at oatpp and drogon, which are both great, but feel too high-level for my purposes. I tried drogon and got something working, but it feels like too much for my requirements, as in particular I'd like to slot in my choice of Json and message-body handling. C.f. the simple approach in Crow, which I easily understand and build on.

  • Crow

    Crow is very fast and easy to use C++ micro web framework (inspired by Python Flask)

  • InfluxDB

  • Crow

    A Fast and Easy to use microframework for the web. (by CrowCpp)

  • Project mention: Experience using crow as web server | /r/cpp | 2023-11-06

    I'm investigating using C++ to build a REST server, and would love to know of people's experiences with Crow-- or whether they would recommend something else as a "medium-level" abstraction C++ web server. As background, I started off experimenting with Python/FastAPI, which is great, but there is too much friction to translate from pybind11-exported C++ objects to the format that FastAPI expects, and, of course, there are inherent performance limitations using Python, which could impact scaling up if the project were to be successful.
