continuable alternatives and similar libraries

Based on the "Concurrency" category

Do you think we are missing an alternative of continuable or a related project?

Add another 'Concurrency' Library


Continuable is a C++14 library that provides full support for:

  • lazy async continuation chaining based on callbacks (then) and expression templates, callbacks are wrapped nicely as promises.
  • no enforced type-erasure which means we need less heap allocations than comparable libraries, strictly following the "don't pay for what you don't use" principle.
  • support for all, any and sequential connections between continuables through expressive operator overloads &&, || and >> as well as free functions when_all, when_any and when_seq.
  • asynchronous error handling through exceptions, error codes and user defined types.
  • syntactic sugar for instance: partial invocation, tuple unpacking, co_await support and executors.
  • encapsuled from any runtime, larger framework or executors makes it possible to use continuable even in smaller or esoteric usage scenarios.
