Simple, virtually-zero-dependencies HTTP client wrapping a system client.

“Virtually-zero” means no unnecessary runtime dependencies. The only runtime dependency, other than std, is URL validation, which is required for security reasons.

Supported Backends

  • wget
  • cURL
  • PowerShell (Invoke-WebRequest)


In your Cargo.toml:

sysreq = "0"

let html = sysreq::get("https://www.rust-lang.org/").unwrap();
println!("{}", String::from_utf8_lossy(&html));
