This is an egg for CHICKEN 4, the unsupported old release. You're almost certainly looking for the CHICKEN 5 version of this egg, if it exists.
If it does not exist, there may be equivalent functionality provided by another egg; have a look at the egg index. Otherwise, please consider porting this egg to the current version of CHICKEN.
A HTTP/2 header compression library for Chicken.
In its current form, the library correctly encodes and decodes HTTP2 headers. It implements Huffman encoding/decoding, indexed and literal header representations, header-tables etc. However, performance and error-handling need to be improved before production use.
returns a function that accepts a string and returns a list of headers decoded.
returns a function that accepts a list of headers and returns an HPACK string. The function takes an optional argument telling it whether to index headers when possible or not. Note that a header is a pair of a symbol and a string
- (make-header-table #!optional (size: 4096) procedure
creates a header table for an encoder/decoder
- hpack-encode header-table headers #!optional (index-headers? #t)procedure
- hpack-decode header-table codeprocedure
Encode decode procedures using a header-table
(define encode (make-hpack-encoder)) (define headers '((:authority . "127.0.0.1") (:method . "GET") (:scheme . "http") (:path . "/") (foo . "bar"))) (encode headers) ;=> "A�\b�\\\v�p����@���\x03bar" (encode headers index: #f) ;.=> "\x11�\b�\\\v�p����\x10���\x03bar" (define (decode (make-hpack-decoder))) (decode (encode headers)) ;=> ((:authority . "127.0.0.1") ; (:method . "GET") ; (:scheme . "http") ; (:path . "/") ; (foo . "bar"))
