# nerf

Gleam bindings to [gun][gun], the Erlang HTTP/1.1, HTTP/2 and Websocket client.


Currently this library is very basic and only supports a portion of the
websocket API, and TLS is not verified!

## Usage

This package can be added to your Gleam project like so.

gleam add nerf

Then use it in your Gleam application.

import nerf/websocket
import gleam/erlang
import gleam/erlang/atom

pub fn main() {
  // Connect
  assert Ok(conn) = websocket.connect("", "/ws", 8080, [])

  // Send some messages
  websocket.send(conn, "Hello")
  websocket.send(conn, "World")

  // Receive some messages
  assert Ok(Text("Hello")) = websocket.receive(conn, 500)
  assert Ok(Text("World")) = websocket.receive(conn, 500)

  // Close the connection

## Testing this library

podman run --rm --detach -p 8080:8080 --name echo jmalloc/echo-server
