Yep. I've been more busy with my work than my open source contributions,
but I donate time to my open repos from time to time.

I'd point to the documentation, but I'm still writing that.
You can just look at the link I provided, it's the parser I wrote being
used on a Qt application. No problematic dependency on Asio's
executor/io_service. I agree with the âraw pointer to a contiguous piece of
memoryâ and that's why I use Asio's buffer abstractions (sorry Niall, but
there is no need to reinvent the wheel).

The discussion was so big and happened years ago. Can't do that. I just
wrote the summary as a list of issues to fix in my all design (so
everything which was already right is lost in the discussions of this
Just provide a parser better than NodeJS and you're good for the most
uncommon users. No allocations etc.
