Library for building an evented http server.

This component builds on top of the Socket component to implement HTTP. Here are the main concepts:

  • Server: Attaches itself to an instance of React\Socket\ServerInterface, parses any incoming data as HTTP, emits a request event for each request.
  • Request: A ReadableStream which streams the request body and contains meta data which was parsed from the request header.
  • Response A WritableStream which streams the response body. You can set the status code and response headers via the writeHead() method.

Quickstart example

This is an HTTP server which responds with Hello World to every request.

$loop = React\EventLoop\Factory::create();
$socket = new React\Socket\Server($loop);

$http = new React\Http\Server($socket);
$http->on('request', function ($request, $response) {
    $response->writeHead(200, array('Content-Type' => 'text/plain'));
    $response->end("Hello World!\n");
