CurlSharp is a .Net binding and object-oriented wrapper for libcurl.

libcurl is a web-client library that can provide cross-platform .Net applications with an easy way to implement such things as:

  • HTTP ( GET / HEAD / PUT / POST / multi-part / form-data )
  • FTP ( upload / download / list / 3rd-party )
  • HTTPS, FTPS, SSL, TLS ( via OpenSSL or GnuTLS )
  • Proxies, proxy tunneling, cookies, user+password authentication.
  • File transfer resume, byte ranges, multiple asynchronous transfers.
  • and much more...

CurlSharp provides simple get/set properties for libcurl's options and information functions, event-based hooks to libcurl's I/O, status, and progress callbacks, and wraps the c-style file I/O behind simple filename properties. The CurlEasy class contains has more than 100 different properties and methods to handle a wide variety of URL transfer requirements. While this may seem overwhelming at first glance, the good news is you will probably need only a tiny subset of these for most situations.

The CurlSharp library consists of these parts:

  • Pure C# P/Invoke bindings to the libcurl API.
  • Optional libcurlshim helper DLL [WIN32].
  • The CurlEasy class which provides a wrapper around a curl_easy session.
  • The CurlMulti class, which serves as a container for multiple CurlEasy objects, and provides a wrapper around a curl_multi session.
  • The CurlShare class which provides an infrastructure for serializing access to data shared by multiple CurlEasy objects, including cookie data and DNS hosts. It implements the curl_share_xxx API.
  • The CurlHttpMultiPartForm to easily construct multi-part forms.
  • The CurlSlist class which wraps a linked list of strings used in cURL.

CurlSharp is available for these platforms:

  • [Stable] Windows 32-bit
  • [Experimental] Win64 port
  • [Experimental] Mono Linux & OS X support


A simple HTTP download program...

using System;
using CurlSharp;

internal class EasyGet
  public static void Main(String[] args)

      using (var easy = new CurlEasy())
        easy.Url = "";
        easy.WriteFunction = OnWriteData;

  public static Int32 OnWriteData(byte[] buf, Int32 size, Int32 nmemb, object data)
      return size*nmemb;

Simple HTTP Post example:

using (var easy = new CurlEasy())
    easy.Url = "http://hostname/testpost.php";
    easy.Post = true;
    var postData = "parm1=12345&parm2=Hello+world%21";
    easy.PostFields = postData;
    easy.PostFieldSize = postData.Length;

HTTP/2.0 download:

using (var easy = new CurlEasy())
    easy.Url = "";
    easy.WriteFunction = OnWriteData;

    // HTTP/2 please
    easy.HttpVersion = CurlHttpVersion.Http2_0;

    // skip SSL verification during debugging
    easy.SslVerifyPeer = false;
    easy.SslVerifyhost = false;
