Bringing RESTful Services to C++ Developers
Well, we live in a world full of ReST so you might as well get used to it - and while you're at it you might as well attempt to use some crowd-sourced/adopted standard. The cool thing about ReST is that it's so much simpler than previous concepts (SOAP, for instance) that many low-level devs have simply rolled their own C++ framework. As awesome as your framework is and as much work as you have poured into it - it's unique – and that not good for a framework. Especially when others are involved in development. Fortunately for us lowly C++ developers we NOW have the option to roll-your-own or ADOPT:

"The C++ REST SDK (codename "Casablanca") is a Microsoft project for cloud-based client-server communication in native code using a modern asynchronous C++ API design. This project allows C++ developers to take advantage of the radical shift in software architecture that cloud computing represents."

Not a fan of the built in and inflexible? We'll you're in luck because those "roll-your-own" guys have been hard at work creating some pretty cool solutions. Check out Corvusoft's Restbed for instance:

  Not at all, please feel free.

  Very cool! Mind if I add the link to this page so it's more prominent than it is in the comments?  
Corvusoft @ 7/24/2015
  Josh, I've been one of those developers that rolled their own. Restbed is an asynchronous RESTful framework for C++11 applications. It's open source and hopefully a large community will form around it. You can check it out on GitHub, https://github.com/corvusoft/restbed. Regards, Ben Crowhurst
