IrrNetLite V2.0 - Lite Enet Framework
irrNetLite is an lite enet wrapper with a clean C++ interface.
Please look at Tutorial.cpp for a quick introduction to coding with irrNetLite.
Why irrNetLite?:
Enet is a portable, robust and reliable UDP implementation, but unfortunately
it comes with an ugly C-style interface that can be rather difficult to integrate
with a large scale application (Or to look at in general.). irrNetLite makes the
experience a whole lot better by imploying OO-style interfaces for packet handling
and connection callbacks and a sprinkle here and there of synctatic sugar (Operator
overloading, etc). irrNetLite also implements some useful features not present in
vanilla Enet (Namely compression and encryption), in the same easy to use manner.
Is there a connection to Irrlicht?:
What are all these header files?:
Do you have something against the std lib?:
irrNetLite V1.0 was originally based off irrNet. irrNet was a network library
for integration of Enet and Irrlicht to create a persistant multi-user
enviroment. irrNet was dependant on Irrlicht. irrNetLite however, has
no dependancy whatsoever on Irrlicht being included or linked in. I do however
like some of the Irrlicht typedefs and helper structures, so those are included
amongst the header files, but by no means do you have to use them in your
application. I do recommend using the typedefs, as it is important to maintain
more precise typing (unsigned/signed) when sending data over a network due
to deferring architecture defaults.
