1 Answer 1



If you want to call web API in C++ project you can use cpprestsdk1

but cpprestsdk does not actively development and maintain only, so if you want another active library for using to achieve communication web service with http and json you can use Boost.Beast as http client and use JSON for Modern C++ as json serializer/de-serializer library

1. The C++ REST SDK is a Microsoft project for cloud-based client-server communication in native code using a modern asynchronous C++ API design. This project aims to help C++ developers connect to and interact with services.

  • I find cpprestsdk useful but it is mentioned not to use as it is not active , I am not able to get with Boostbeat easily , any other suggestion
