= Gun

Gun is an Erlang HTTP client with support for HTTP/1.1, HTTP/2 and Websocket.

== Goals

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.

== Sponsors

The project is currently sponsored by https://pleroma.social/[Pleroma].

The now removed SPDY implementation was sponsored by http://leo-project.net/leofs/[LeoFS Cloud Storage].

It was previously sponsored by https://sameroom.io/[Sameroom].
