An application level IO independent h2 library

Project Description

GET Hy the Fastest Way!


GetHy is pronounced “Get high”. It stands for “Get Hypertext Transfer Protocol”. It is one of those awkward word-playing jokes.

GetHy is an application level IO indenpent HTTP/2 library. It can be used in any IO model and is super easy to use.

HTTP was intended to be a stateless protocol. At my best understanding, HTTP/2 changes that a little bit at the Session and Presentation level.

Therefore, using HTTP/2 directly is a little bit counter intuitive if you are used to the stateless Request-Response model. However, HTTP/2 at an Application level is or should be still stateless. It doesn’t change the HTTP semantics for application/Web developers.

This library utilizes the powerful and only Python HTTP/2 library h2.

h2 is not an application level library in terms of that it doesn’t provide the GET, POST kind of semantics for the user. GetHy builds on top of h2 and provides the user Web level semantics.

Like h2, GetHy does not do IO at all! You are free to use whatever IO model.

Off course you should use coroutines. Because you should check out my Web framework hyper2web.
