    • To bind to privileged ports, your program must be executable as root. Privileges are resigned after the port is bound.
    • Web.App uses Warp under the hood to serve a WAI app based on provided routes.
    • SSL & HTTP2 are supported.
  2. Web.App provides a function called webappMain (as well as a series of other similarly named functions) that start your app.
