Why should I use pinus?
Fast, scalable, real-time game server development is not an easy job, and a good container or framework can reduce its complexity.
Unfortunately, unlike web, finding a game server framework solution is difficult, especially an open source solution. Pinus fills this gap, providing a full solution for building game server frameworks.
