Welcome

The ZeroMQ lightweight messaging kernel is a library which extends the standard socket interfaces with features traditionally provided by specialised messaging middleware products. ZeroMQ sockets provide an abstraction of asynchronous message queues, multiple messaging patterns, message filtering (subscriptions), seamless access to multiple transport protocols and more.

Supported platforms

Libzmq is mainly written in C++98 with some optional C++11-fragments. For configuration either autotools or CMake is employed. See below for some lists of platforms, where libzmq has been successfully compiled on.

For more details, see here.

For some platforms (Linux, Mac OS X), prebuilt binary packages are supplied by the ZeroMQ organization. For other platforms, you need to build your own binaries.

Installation of binary packages

Linux

For Linux users, pre-built binary packages are available for most distributions. Note that DRAFT APIs can change at any time without warning, pick a STABLE build to avoid having them enabled.
