[][src]Crate body_image

Provides a uniform access strategy to HTTP bodies in RAM, or buffered to a temporary file, and optionally memory mapped.

BodyImage, BodySink and supporting types provide a strategy for safely handling potentially large HTTP request or response bodies without risk of allocation failure, or the need to impose awkwardly low size limits in the face of high concurrency. Tunables size thresholds can be used to decide when to accumulate the body in RAM vs. the filesystem, including when the length is unknown in advance.

A Dialog defines a complete HTTP request and response recording, using BodyImage for the request and response bodies and http crate types for the headers and other components.

See the top-level (project workspace) README for additional rationale.

Optional Features

The following features may be enabled or disabled at build time. All are enabled by default.

mmap: Adds BodyImage::mem_map support for memory mapping from FsRead state.

barc: Body Archive container file reader and writer, for serializing Dialog records. See also barc-cli.

body-image-futio: Asynchronous HTTP integration with futures, http, hyper 0.12.x., and tokio for BodyImage/BodySink, for both client and server use.



A logical buffer of bytes, which may or may not be RAM resident.


A logical buffer of bytes, which may or may not be RAM resident, in the process of being written. This is the write-side corollary to BodyImage.


An HTTP request and response recording.


Extract of an HTTP response.


Extract of an HTTP request.


A collection of size limits and performance tuning constants. Setters are available via Tuner


A builder for Tunables. Invariants are asserted in the various setters and finish.



Error enumeration for BodyImage and BodySink types. This may be extended in the future so exhaustive matching is gently discouraged with an unused variant.


Provides a Read reference for a BodyImage in any state.


A subset of supported HTTP Transfer or Content-Encoding values. The Display/ToString representation is as per the HTTP header value.


Exploded representation of the possible BodyImage states, obtained via BodyImage::explode.



The crate version string.



Access by reference for HTTP request (via RequestRecorded) and response recording types.


Access by reference for HTTP request recording types.
