TLS/SSL support

Post by vetelko »

Hi guys,

is there a chance that newlisp will support TLS/SSL in the near future? In my case I need it to fetch content using httpS protocol.

use newlisp with Stunnel. Or use a Apache or nginx reverse proxy

There should be a curl wrapper somwhere. Never tried myself though.
Have you tried this one?

I use the curl wrapper, works well for me.

I made a TLS wrapper so you could open a TLS connection, but it wasn't integrated into get-url. My wrapper used libtls from the OpenBSD project.

Thank you for replies guys. I also started using curl, but IMHO whole world has started using https protocol so soon or later get-url against public internet will be useless.

Are you expecting that newlisp bundles a SSL/TLS library?

That would be nice. libressl and libtls are good candidates for inclusion.

We already depend on libpcre I think.

Optionally of course. There are already optional parts as UTF-8 support or FFI so why not TLS if bigger binary is not a problem.
