There are several options, I've looked at couple of them and the one I like
the most so far is https://github.com/yhirose/cpp-httplib for a few reasons:

* It's MIT licensed.
* It supports Linux, macOS and Windows (and presumably other platforms).
* It doesn't have any dependencies, it can optionally use zlib and OpenSSL.
* It's a modern C++11 implementation, the entire library is a single header.
