Top 23 Networking Open-Source Projects
Square’s meticulous HTTP client for the JVM, Android, and GraalVM.Project mention: Reddit.com has deleted AAAA records and is back to being a legacy website | reddit.com/r/ipv6 | 2021-11-23
It turns out everyone, including Reddit, uses Square OkHttp for Android client apps. Which claims to do a good job at trying IPv4/IPv6, but doesn't actually do Happy Eyeballs.
Elegant HTTP Networking in SwiftProject mention: Interoperability of Swift command line tool | reddit.com/r/swift | 2021-11-05
Scout APM: A developer's best friend. Try free for 14-days. Scout APM uses tracing logic that ties bottlenecks to source code so you know the exact line of code causing performance issues and can get back to building a great product faster.
Apache Dubbo is a high-performance, java based, open source RPC framework.
A delightful networking framework for iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS.
Netty project - an event-driven asynchronous network application frameworkProject mention: Java web sockets | reddit.com/r/javahelp | 2021-10-28
A command line tool and library for transferring data with URL syntax, supporting DICT, FILE, FTP, FTPS, GOPHER, GOPHERS, HTTP, HTTPS, IMAP, IMAPS, LDAP, LDAPS, MQTT, POP3, POP3S, RTMP, RTMPS, RTSP, SCP, SFTP, SMB, SMBS, SMTP, SMTPS, TELNET and TFTP. libcurl offers a myriad of powerful featuresProject mention: Blockchain, the amazing solution for almost nothing (2020) | reddit.com/r/programming | 2021-12-06
Cross-platform asynchronous I/OProject mention: Introduction to NodeJS | dev.to | 2021-11-22
Node uses Libuv as the event loop implementation. To use a Node asynchronous API, you pass a callback function as an argument to that API function, and during the event loop, your callback is executed.
Run Linux Software Faster and Safer than Linux with Unikernels.
Fast HTTP package for Go. Tuned for high performance. Zero memory allocations in hot paths. Up to 10x faster than net/httpProject mention: Apparently, all those tiny NPM packages are also debian packages... | reddit.com/r/linux | 2021-11-17
A quick search and you'll find multiple HTTP libraries that are alternatives to the built-in http libraries in Go's standard library. The most popular of which claims to be 10x faster than the built-in HTTP library, at the cost of having a different API, with 16k stars.
A runtime for writing reliable asynchronous applications with Rust. Provides I/O, networking, scheduling, timers, ...Project mention: How to build a blockchain in Rust | dev.to | 2021-12-01
We’re using libp2p as our peer-to-peer networking layer and Tokio as our underlying runtime.
Network abstraction layer written in Swift.Project mention: RetroSwift new library to make API requests | reddit.com/r/swift | 2021-01-26
What is the advantage of your library over established solutions like Moya or protocol oriented networking approaches?
A Stable & Secure Tunnel based on KCP with N:M multiplexing and FEC. Available for ARM, MIPS, 386 and AMD64。KCPプロトコルに基づく安全なトンネル。KCP 프로토콜을 기반으로 하는 보안 터널입니다。Project mention: Looking for lowest-latency WebSocket server/library | reddit.com/r/golang | 2021-05-08
Asynchronous socket networking library for Mac and iOS
Event-driven network library for multi-threaded Linux server in C++11
:zap: KCP - A Fast and Reliable ARQ ProtocolProject mention: How feasible is this idea? Creating a battery run audio transmitter and receiver over TCP/IP | reddit.com/r/esp8266 | 2021-05-30
I'd consider KCP protocol over TCP, it has 30-40% lower latency at the expense of 20% higher bandwidth.
RestKit is a framework for consuming and modeling RESTful web resources on iOS and OS X
eBPF-based Networking, Security, and ObservabilityProject mention: Container security best practices: Ultimate guide | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-10-13
The Java gRPC implementation. HTTP/2 based RPCProject mention: Buf raises $93M to deprecate REST/JSON | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-12-08
`proto_library` for building the `.bin` file from protos works great. Generating stubs/messages for "all" languages does not. Each language does not want to implement gRPC rules, the gRPC team does not want to implement rules for each language. Sort of a deadlock situation. For example:
- Go (different semantics than all of the other): https://github.com/bazelbuild/rules_go/blob/master/proto/def...
But there's also no real cohesion within the community. The biggest effort to date has been in https://github.com/stackb/rules_proto which integrates with gazelle.
tl;dr: Low alignment results in diverging implementations that are complicated to understand for newcomers. Buff's approach is much more appealing as it's a "this is the one way to do the right thing" and having it just work by detecting `proto_library` and doing all of the linting/registry stuff automagically in CI would be fantastic.
Ultra fast asyncio event loop.Project mention: C++20 coroutine benchmark result, using my coroutine library | reddit.com/r/cpp | 2021-12-03
Nice ! What about python with the free asyncio upgrade https://github.com/MagicStack/uvloop ?
Event notification libraryProject mention: Io_uring is not an event system | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-06-17
A fault tolerant, protocol-agnostic RPC systemProject mention: Fun with generics: REST HTTP handler proof-of-concept | reddit.com/r/golang | 2021-11-15
This comes dangerously close to functional services as popularized by Twitter et al and encapsulated in the well known Finagle library. I don’t know but I strongly suspect /u/peterbourgon was heavily influenced by this while developing the notion of Endpoints in his reasonably well known go-kit library, although it’s significantly less general due mostly to limitations in Go’s type system.
