What Developers Say About libcurl

This is what some developers have said about libcurl.

  • Curl is a awesome piece of software that makes different system talk together seamlessly. We use it for all our backend system and for our text expansion tool PhraseExpander.

    - Andrea Nagar, Managing Director Nagarsoft, maker of PhraseExpander

  • XonaSoftware's product, Situate, focuses on IT process automation. Our unique application of workflow technology allows IT process to be modeled graphically from a palette of tasks that do the heavy lifting. We use libcurl to move files as part of our managed file transfer. We also use libcurl to automate interactions with websites, listen for incoming mail, etc. libcurl is an incredible, well-designed product. It's exceptionally flexible and very easy to use.

    - Mike Mazzolini, Founder, XonaSoftware, Inc.

  • I'm a professional C++ PC and console game developer and Libcurl is my go-to library when I want to communicate with a web service for cloud or web based game features. Libcurl has allowed me to implement game side communication in platform independent ways at several well known game development studios. The features I've used Libcurl to implement include:
    • Sharing user generated content
    • Pushing and pulling content and data between games and web services in real time
    • Implementing web community features that draw on data from in game
    • Granting players in game rewards, (for out of game actions)
    • Most importantly, Libcurl has allowed me to provide business intelligence groups with data that could be used to drive business decisions to help maximize profits for several companies I have worked for in the past 10 years

    Libcurl is mature, reliable, and easy to use. It is definitely a tool every serious game developer should have in their tool chest.

  • Thank for libcurl, it is awesome!

    Our product, GDocsDrive, employs libcurl for all the HTTP communication with Google cloud storage through Google Document List API. And libcurl is proven to be very robust and powerful in our programming experience, especially in a multi-thread environment. Actually, before we decided to use libcurl as the HTTP library for your project, we struggled a lot on choosing between libcurl and WinInet. Today I would say that we are happy and lucky that we eventually choose libcurl. Libcurl works for all different http requests and the callback function mechanism really makes the code neat and comfortable to write. It saves us lots of programming effort.

    Thanks again for the great job!

    - Jerry Wang, Founder of GDocsDrive team

  • Thanks for libcurl library, we use it for several backend processes in our infrastructure for our european online shop Compredia.eu. Now we have a perfect communication between customers, shops and several kind of suppliers with help of libcurl.

    - Philipp v. d. Born, Compredia GmbH

  • libcurl is a robust and easy to use tool for scripting web interaction and it provides all the core functionality needed in the testing tool of our MMVC project.

    - Jani Kajala, CTO, Kajala Group Ltd.

  • I am using libcurl as the backend of my news notification program which provides popups of new news via rss feeds. I have to say libcurl has been the easiest thing to use that I've seen, and I will continue to use it in later versions of my applications. Kudos to the developers!

    - Don Neumann News notification

  • We have found libcurl to be an important cornerstone in many of our applications, which need to run on a variety of platforms. Its solid reliability, simple API, and excellent mailing list support made it an easy choice for us.

    - Jonathan Arnold inSORS

  • libcurl allows us to build next generation Internet applications without worrying about the Internet. libcurl elegantly and reliable handles all of our uploading and downloading so we can worry about creating great new software.

    - Matt Veenstra tribalmedia

  • The Blue Frog application uses a libcurl based HTTP client engine (with Zlib and OpenSSL), that is scriptable through Lua scripts using an internally developed glue library. Libcurl proved to be a solid solution with excellent support and a lively community of developers. The high level interface is feature rich, easy to use and well documented (!). During our debugging sessions we noticed that code is well written and is open for enhancements. Definitely a safe bet when it comes to HTTP client libraries.

    - Shmulik Regev

  • UnrealIRCd makes use of libcurl to allow chat network administrators to store their configurations in a central location and retrieve them securely using both HTTPS and FTPS protocols. Libcurl made the integration of this feature fast and easy by allowing minimal changes to the internal structure of our code. Libcurl has also been beneficial to us since it is under constant development and the developers are most certainly open to suggestions from us, as well as others. We look forward to seeing where libcurl will go in the future, and to finding new ways to make use of libcurl!

    - Dominick "codemastr" Meglio

  • Making use of libcurl its easily possible to integrate web services like ebay (please see ebay codebase) or google .. into your client programs for your desktop. It also fits fine within the platform independent programming Qt Toolkit made by Trolltech AS.

    - Roland Mundloch, near Munich Germany.

  • focuseek searchbox takes advantage of curl to crawl HTTP, HTTPS and FTP sites both on intranets and on the internet. curl is really solid and stable, provides a multithreaded api and is compatible with the many quirks of servers "as seen in the wild". Moreover it supports a lot of platforms, is really easy to use and, last but not least, its developers are competent and willing to help.

    - Michele Bini, Florence, Italy

  • Thanks a lot for a very useful library! (soooo much more stable and powerful than widely used alternatives, it's not even funny! Helped me tremendously in getting net transfers just right)

    - Andreas Mohr

  • libcurl has proven itself as a mature, robust library that presents a clear interface on top of an efficient and rock-solid implementation. Integrating libcurl with Sidewinder was a straightforward, painless task made even easier by the presence of an excellent and helpful online community.
