README

A QUIC implementation in pure Go

Godoc Reference Travis Build Status CircleCI Build Status Windows Build Status Code Coverage fuzzit

quic-go is an implementation of the QUIC protocol in Go. It roughly implements the IETF QUIC draft, although we don't fully support any of the draft versions at the moment.

Version compatibility

Since quic-go is under active development, there's no guarantee that two builds of different commits are interoperable. The QUIC version used in the master branch is just a placeholder, and should not be considered stable.

If you want to use quic-go as a library in other projects, please consider using a tagged release. These releases expose experimental QUIC versions, which are guaranteed to be stable.

Guides

We currently support Go 1.13+, with Go modules support enabled.

Running tests:

go test ./...

QUIC without HTTP/3

Take a look at [this echo example](example/echo/echo.go).

Usage

As a server

See the [example server](example/main.go). Starting a QUIC server is very similar to the standard lib http in go:

http.Handle("/", http.FileServer(http.Dir(wwwDir)))
http3.ListenAndServeQUIC("localhost:4242", "/path/to/cert/chain.pem", "/path/to/privkey.pem", nil)

As a client

See the [example client](example/client/main.go). Use a http3.RoundTripper as a Transport in a http.Client.

http.Client{
  Transport: &http3.RoundTripper{},
}
