Overview

Sagui is a cross-platform C library which helps to develop web servers or frameworks. Its core has been developed using the GNU libmicrohttpd, uthash, PCRE2, ZLib and GnuTLS, that’s why it is so fast, compact and useful to run on embedded systems.

Features

Examples

A minimal hello world HTTP server:

void req_cb(void *cls, struct sg_httpreq *req, struct sg_httpres *res) {
    sg_httpres_send(res, "Hello world", "text/plain", 200);
}

int main(void) {
    struct sg_httpsrv *srv = sg_httpsrv_new(req_cb, NULL);
    sg_httpsrv_listen(srv, 8080, false);
    printf("Server running at http://localhost:%d\n", sg_httpsrv_port(srv));
    getchar();
    sg_httpsrv_free(srv);
    return 0;
}

The router support is isolated from the HTTP feature, so it can be used to route any path structure, for example:

void home_cb(void *cls, struct sg_route *route) {
    printf("Home\n");
}

void download_cb(void *cls, struct sg_route *route) {
    printf("Download\n");
}

int main(void) {
    struct sg_router *router;
    struct sg_route *routes = NULL;
    sg_routes_add(&routes, "/home", home_cb, NULL);
    sg_routes_add(&routes, "/download", download_cb, NULL);
    router = sg_router_new(routes);
    sg_router_dispatch(router, "/home", NULL);
    sg_routes_cleanup(&routes);
    sg_router_free(router);
    return 0;
}

lastly, putting everything together:

struct Holder {
    struct sg_httpreq *req;
    struct sg_httpres *res;
};

void route_home_cb(void *cls, struct sg_route *route) {
    struct Holder *holder = sg_route_user_data(route);
    sg_httpres_send(holder->res, "Home", "text/plain", 200);
}

void route_download_cb(void *cls, struct sg_route *route) {
    struct Holder *holder = sg_route_user_data(route);
    sg_httpres_send(holder->res, "Download", "text/plain", 200);
}

void req_cb(void *cls, struct sg_httpreq *req, struct sg_httpres *res) {
    struct sg_router *router = cls;
    struct Holder holder = {req, res};
    if (sg_router_dispatch(router, sg_httpreq_path(req), &holder) != 0)
        sg_httpres_send(res, "404", "text/plain", 404);
}

int main(void) {
    struct sg_route *routes = NULL;
    struct sg_router *router;
    struct sg_httpsrv *srv;
    sg_routes_add(&routes, "/home", route_home_cb, NULL);
    sg_routes_add(&routes, "/download", route_download_cb, NULL);
    router = sg_router_new(routes);
    srv = sg_httpsrv_new(req_cb, router);
    sg_httpsrv_listen(srv, 8080, false);
    printf("Server running at http://localhost:%d\n", sg_httpsrv_port(srv));
    getchar();
    sg_httpsrv_free(srv);
    sg_routes_cleanup(&routes);
    sg_router_free(router);
    return 0;
}

There are other examples available in the examples directory.

Downloading

All stable binaries are available for download at the releases page with their respective checksums. For other systems, the packages Source code (tar.gz|zip) contains the library source.

Building/installing

The easiest way to build the library is using a Docker container as a builder. Follow the instructions at libsagui-docker/README.md for more details.

Check the docs/BUILD.md for more instructions for how to build the examples, tests, documentation and the library. Also, take a look at docs/INSTALL.md for how to install the library from sources on your system.

Documentation

The documentation has been written in Doxygen and is available in HTML format at libsagui-docs/index.html.

Versioning

Starting from the version 1.0.0, Sagui follows the SemVer rules regarding API changes with backwards compatibility and stable ABI across major releases.

Compatibility

A typical upgrade of the Sagui library does not break the ABI at all. Take a look at the API/ABI compatibility report to compare most recent library versions.

See also Checking backward API/ABI compatibility of Sagui library versions.
