Short Description
RESTful API's development support library for C++, named after Emiliano Zapata
Full Description

Zapata is a RESTful API development framework for C++, built upon the Ømq
communication library and designed for high-performance and high
scalability. It follows the C++14 and C++17 standards and coding style,
including lambda functions, promisses and assync programming. It delivers
Router/Dealer, Pub/Sub and Push/Pull networking patterns
encapsulated and abstracted by the RESTful pattern. It has built-in support
for MongoDB, Redis, Oauth2.0 user authorization and authentication. Finally,
it has a really neat JSON support. It still lacks documentation, that's a work in progress.

$ sh
$ ./
$ ./configure && make check
$ sudo make install
$ sudo ldconfig
$ cd ..

3) PostgreSQL support

b) Clone and checkout repo:

$ git clone git://
$ cd mongo-cxx-driver
$ git checkout 26compat

c) Build:

$ sudo scons --prefix=/usr --sharedclient --use-system-boost --full install-mongoclient

d) Install Zapata's MongoDB support packages:

Compiling from sources

Each package is an autonomous autotools based project so, all you have to do is clone the project,
navigate into the package dir and build the package.

1) C++ compiler and autotools dependencies

a) Install dependencies:

$ sudo apt-get install g++ build-essential autoconf libtool pkg-config libcrypto++-dev libssl-dev libmagic-dev libossp-uuid-dev libzmq3-dev libczmq-dev libsodium-dev libpython3.5-dev ecl

2) Building a zapata package

a) Clone the git repository:

$ git clone git://

b) Go into package source dir and build (using zapata-base as an example):

$ cd zapata/base
$ autoreconf -vfi 
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconf=/etc "CXXFLAGS=-O3 -Wall"
$ make
$ sudo make install

c) Repeat _b)_ for every package you want
