The snap-server package
This is the first developer prerelease of the Snap framework. Snap is a simple and fast web development framework and server written in Haskell. For more information or to download the latest version, you can visit the Snap project website at http://snapframework.com/.
The Snap HTTP server is a high performance, epoll-enabled, iteratee-based web
server library written in Haskell. Together with the
snap-core library upon
which it depends, it provides a clean and efficient Haskell programming
interface to the HTTP protocol.
Higher-level facilities for building web applications (like user/session management, component interfaces, data modeling, etc.) are planned but not yet implemented, so this release will mostly be of interest for those who:
need a fast and minimal HTTP API at roughly the same level of abstraction as Java servlets, or
are interested in contributing to the Snap Framework project.
