Net2: Evolved Networking Libraries

 (require net2) package: net2

The net2 library is a framework for building networked communication protocols. It defines several abstractions for establishing connections to other parties in an abstract network, as well as tools for high- level communication between those parties.

Included in net2 is a full HTTP2 client and server implementation, allowing Racket programs to communicate over TLS-encrypted HTTP2 via TCP connections over the Internet, machine-local UNIX domain sockets, or in-memory pipes within a single Racket process. This functionality is defined across several modules:
