The Bincrafters team recently hit double digits, which feels like a big accomplishment for us. Each member has brought a unique combination of experience, insight, and Conan recipe’s to the table. This has allowed us to start checking multiple packages off our list each week for the last two months. It’s also allowed us to level-up our packaging game in a few cases.

Bincrafters has now published a Conan package for Microsoft C++ REST SDK to our public Conan repository on Bintray. It is a project which offers both HTTP client and server functionality, including websockets support. It features a modern asynchronous API design in C++ with Boost Asio. It is cross-platform, supporting Windows, Linux, and Mac, as well as IOS and Android. The C++ REST SDK is widely used among C++ projects which have need to interact with REST services. A swagger generator for the C++ REST SDK has also been constructed by the community, which can generate the C++ code needed to compile a strongly-typed C++ SDK for any REST API that publishes a swagger specifications. This makes it an obvious choice for interacting with any such REST API.
