The direct-http package

[Tags: bsd3, library]

This package is a native implementation of the HTTP and HTTPS protocols. It lives as a library, exporting an interface reminiscent of CGI or FastCGI. Thus policy on how namespace is mapped to files and/or scripts is entirely up to the client application.

This package is partially compatible with direct-fastcgi by the same author, but is intended more by way of a replacement for it than a companion to it, and makes several design decisions differently. The biggest is the use of MonadControlBase for exceptions.

Version 0.5.2: Actually works with daemonization, by using a feature of direct-daemon added for this purpose to open the socket after forking but before dropping privileges.

Version 0.5.1: Uses SafeSemaphore, which is the future, rather than QSem from base, which is deprecated.

Version 0.5.0.1: This preliminary release is a preview to gauge community interest. Not even all major features are implemented; things that exist only as stubs include encryption, compression, chunking, and reading back cookies. Nonetheless it may be useful if run behind a reverse proxy that provides the missing features transparently, such as Apache.
