Date Wed, 17 Jul 2019 18:04:00 GMT
Mr TheSegfault created MINIFICPP-981:
----------------------------------------

             Summary: Avoid maintaining our own Curl HTTP Client
                 Key: MINIFICPP-981
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MINIFICPP-981
             Project: Apache NiFi MiNiFi C++
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Mr TheSegfault
             Fix For: 0.8.0


[https://github.com/jpbarrette/curlpp] may be a better alternative. I use it on a separate
project and would have preferred starting with that. Some stakeholders did not want us to
use that library, but I think we should avoid maintaining our own client and wasting cycles
to fix bugs. While we can argue that we "know what our bugs are" I don't think that we do
and there are likely many more. Through evolution curlpp has improved and I would not like
to incur that cost on our project. I would prefer to avoid maintaining curl code and use a
third party library.
