zyre 2.0.1 Framework for proximity-based peer-to-peer applications

Zyre provides reliable group messaging over local area networks using zeromq. It has these key characteristics:

  • Zyre needs no administration or configuration.

  • Peers may join and leave the network at any time.

  • Peers talk to each other without any central brokers or servers.

  • Peers can talk directly to each other.

  • Peers can join groups, and then talk to groups.

  • Zyre is reliable, and loses no messages even when the network is heavily loaded.

  • Zyre is fast and has low latency, requiring no consensus protocols.

  • Zyre is designed for WiFi networks, yet also works well on Ethernet networks.
