libcoap examples

libcoap is an open source C implementation of the CoAP protocol. It can be used for developing CoAP services in Linux, MacOS, as well as, in various IoT operating systems such as Contiki, LwIP, and TinyOS.

However, libcoap lacks  documentation. Apart from some installation instructions there is not any tutorial on how to use the library. Moreover, the examples included in the source code are very complex and they cause confusion. I have constructed a small set of examples that use libcoap to perform simple tasks.

All examples are available on github
