Gun is an Erlang HTTP client with support for HTTP/1.1, HTTP/2 and Websocket.
Gun aims to provide an *easy to use* client compatible with
HTTP/1.1, HTTP/2 and Websocket. Gun can connect through any
combination of Socks and HTTP proxies.
Gun is *always connected*. It will maintain a permanent
connection to the server, reopening it as soon as the server
closes it, saving time for the requests that come in.
All connections are *supervised* automatically, allowing
developers to focus on writing their code without worrying.
The project is currently sponsored by
https://sameroom.io/[Sameroom] and https://pleroma.social/[Pleroma].
The now removed SPDY implementation was sponsored by
http://leo-project.net/leofs/[LeoFS Cloud Storage].
