A small and fast async runtime.
This crate simply re-exports other smaller async crates (see the source).
To use tokio-based libraries with smol, apply the
async-compat adapter to futures and I/O
Connect to an HTTP website, make a GET request, and pipe the response to the standard output:
There's a lot more in the examples directory.
- async-channel - Multi-producer multi-consumer channels
- async-executor - Composable async executors
- async-fs - Async filesystem primitives
- async-io - Async adapter for I/O types, also timers
- async-lock - Async locks (barrier, mutex, reader-writer lock, semaphore)
- async-net - Async networking primitives (TCP/UDP/Unix)
- async-process - Async interface for working with processes
- async-task - Task abstraction for building executors
- blocking - A thread pool for blocking I/O
- futures-lite - A lighter fork of futures
- polling - Portable interface to epoll, kqueue, event ports, and wepoll
Some code examples are using TLS for authentication. The repository contains a self-signed certificate usable for testing, but it should not be used for real-world scenarios. Browsers and tools like curl will show this certificate as insecure.
In browsers, accept the security prompt or use
curl -k on the
command line to bypass security warnings.
minica --domains localhost -ip-addresses 127.0.0.1 -ca-cert certificate.pem openssl pkcs12 -export -out identity.pfx -inkey localhost/key.pem -in localhost/cert.pem
Another useful tool for making certificates is mkcert.
