h2: HTTP/2 Protocol Stack
:alt: Build Status
:alt: Code Coverage
:alt: Documentation Status
:alt: Chat community
This repository contains a pure-Python implementation of a HTTP/2 protocol
stack. It's written from the ground up to be embeddable in whatever program you
choose to use, ensuring that you can speak HTTP/2 regardless of your
programming paradigm.
You use it like this:
.. code-block:: python
import h2.connection
import h2.config
config = h2.config.H2Configuration()
conn = h2.connection.H2Connection(config=config)
conn.send_headers(stream_id=stream_id, headers=headers)
conn.send_data(stream_id, data)
events = conn.receive_data(socket_data)
This repository does not provide a parsing layer, a network layer, or any rules
about concurrency. Instead, it's a purely in-memory solution, defined in terms
of data actions and HTTP/2 frames. This is one building block of a full Python
HTTP implementation.
To install it, just run:
.. code-block:: console
$ python -m pip install h2
