WARNING proxyio is still in beta stage, very unstable!

proxyio is a socket library that provides several common communication patterns. It aims to make the networking layer scalable, and easy to use. proxyio is implemented in C, now only support unix/linux, we will support windows and other os platform in the near future.

proxyio now support c/c++/golang/php/ruby/python/lua languages binding


For more details, see APIs: xio(7) xpoll(7) sp(7)

The communication patterns, also called "scalability protocols", are basic blocks for building distributed systems. By combining them you can create a vast array of distributed applications. The following scalability protocols are provided in the near future:

BUS      simple many-to-many communication
REQREP   build clusters of stateless services to process user requests
PUBSUB   distributes messages to large sets of interested subscribers

For more details, see patterns demo REQREP BUS PUBSUB

Scalability protocols are layered on top of the transport layer in the network stack and implemented by endpoint.

The library exposes a BSD-socket-like C API to the applications.
