Top 23 HTTP2 Open-Source Projects

  • mitmproxy

    An interactive TLS-capable intercepting HTTP proxy for penetration testers and software developers.

    Project mention: Extracting TLS keys from an unwilling application | | 2022-05-24

    Not sure about the non-security expert bit but I've done stuff[0] similar to this for iOS using Frida[1] which supports macOS too. For apps that use unpinned certificates and the builtin networking libraries(NSURLSession you can directly use mimtproxy[2] or Charles[3]





  • Echo

    High performance, minimalist Go web framework

    Project mention: Best/fastest web framework for go | | 2022-05-24

    Not sure if it could be considered the best (that depends on many different factors). But I had very good experiences with echo

  • Vapor

    💧 A server-side Swift HTTP web framework.

    Project mention: Trying to create a backend for social media app I’m developing. | | 2022-04-23

    You can try Vapor. But that’s if you want to build all the server side code (which if you want scalable and Firebase won’t work, you might need to)


    ⚙️ NGINX config generator on steroids 💉

    Project mention: Installing without docker directly on Ubuntu | | 2022-04-28

  • Vert.x

    Vert.x is a tool-kit for building reactive applications on the JVM

    Project mention: Java Quarkus CQRS and EventSourcing microservice example 👋💫✨ | | 2022-05-23

    Reactive approach of Quarkus Vertex or Spring Reactor has some tradeoffs, not all libraries has good integration with it, like tracing, it's harder to debug, writing complicated business logic in reactive functional way is very specific and feels more difficult, and not only for writing and for reading too. Quarkus Vertex with Mutiny in my opinion has much better reactive API, documentation and production ready libraries.

  • cdnjs

    🤖 CDN assets - The #1 free and open source CDN built to make life easier for developers.

    Project mention: Public CDN's aren't useful anymore | | 2022-03-31

    Public CDN’s were supposed to help page speed, but things have changed in 2019. Services like Google Fonts, Cloudflare’s cdnjs, jsDelivr and Google Hosted Libraries may not help make sites load faster anymore.

    Project mention: [need help] From Go to PHP | | 2022-02-20 - GO and PHP are very good friends. How I see it from Go dev side, PHP is very good DSL. Easy static analysis, very good reflections. If you will go 8.* it is as good as any modern language.

    Project mention: What enterprise wide solutions have you adopted as alternatives to digitally generating documents that are not PDF? | | 2022-05-04

    As for generating PDF's themselves. You could start rolling your own service... or maybe you could use something like this: Or maybe you use it as an inspiration and use the (F)OSS tools inside that box (look at the documentation) to roll your own service instead. Or - depending on the budget - you could go for a proprietary solution and go with e.g. iText (

    There is also a Github repository keeping track of all the load-testing tools out there: You will probably find something that will fit your bill.

    I do not understand though why it is of any relevance what language the application is written in. Yes, it indicates a certain speed and novelty but you can write fast applications with good UX in other programming languages too.
