With a multiple-consumer ring buffer, each client has its own place in the history and can be brought up to date independently. Additionally, by expecting clients to implement the server-time extension, all events can be accurately replayed, rather than being limited to messages.
pouncerequires libtls, provided by either LibreTLS (for OpenSSL) or by LibreSSL. It primarily targets FreeBSD, where it is sandboxed with capsicum(4). Linux and macOS are also supported.
./configure make all sudo make install
If installing libtls manually to
/usr/local, for example, make sure
/usr/local/lib appears in
/etc/ld.so.conf.d/* and be sure to run
ldconfig(8) once the library is
./configure to find it.
