This sample application provides a HTTP server that supports a number of query methods for testing purposes. Invoke it using one of the following syntaxes:
swift run NIOHTTP1Server # Binds the server on ::1, port 8888. swift run NIOHTTP1Server 8988 # Binds the server on ::1, port 8988 swift run NIOHTTP1Server /path/to/unix/socket # Binds the server using the given UNIX socket swift run NIOHTTP1Server 192.168.0.5 8988 # Binds the server on 192.168.0.5:8988
The final three syntaxes optionally accept an additional argument, a path to a directory of files to serve from the webserver. The first syntax does not, as that would conflict with the UNIX socket path syntax.
So, for example, to spin up a local webserver on port 80 serving a specific directory, you can run:
swift run NIOHTTP1Server localhost 80 /var/www
The server has the following endpoints:
/: serves "Hello world!"
/sendfile/*: serves the file at path
*to the client, using
/fileio/*: serves the file at path
*to the client by reading the file in to memory in chunks.
/dynamic/echo: Echoes the request body back to the client.
/dynamic/echo_balloon: Echoes the request body back to the client after buffering it entirely in memory first.
/dynamic/pid: Echoes pack the PID of the server.
/dynamic/write-delay: Echoes "Hello world" after a 100ms delay.
/dynamic/info: Sends information about the received request.
/dynamic/trailers: Sends the PID along with some HTTP trailers.
/dynamic/continuous: Sends a chunked body forever.
/dynamic/count-to-ten: Sends the numbers 1 through 10 in separate chunks.
/dynamic/client-ip: Sends what the server believes the client IP is.
