NAME Twiggy - AnyEvent HTTP server for PSGI (like Thin) SYNOPSIS twiggy --listen :8080 See "twiggy -h" for more details. use Twiggy::Server; my $server = Twiggy::Server->new( host => $host, port => $port, ); $server->register_service($app); AE::cv->recv; DESCRIPTION Twiggy is a lightweight and fast HTTP server with unique features such as: PSGI Can run any PSGI applications. Fully supports *psgi.nonblocking* and *psgi.streaming* interfaces. AnyEvent This server uses AnyEvent and runs in a non-blocking event loop, so it's best to run event-driven web applications that runs I/O bound jobs or delayed responses such as long-poll, WebSocket or streaming content (server push). This software used to be called Plack::Server::AnyEvent but was renamed to Twiggy. See "NAMING" for details. Fast header parser Uses XS/C based HTTP header parser for the best performance. (optional) Lightweight and Fast The memory required to run twiggy is 6MB and it can serve more than 4500 req/s with a single process on Perl 5.10 with MacBook Pro 13" late 2009. Superdaemon aware Supports Server::Starter for hot deploy and graceful restarts. NAMING Twiggy? Because it is like Thin <http://code.macournoyer.com/thin/>, Ruby's Rack web server using EventMachine. You know, Twiggy is thin :) Why the cute name instead of more descriptive namespace? Are you on drugs? I'm sick of naming Perl software like HTTP::Server::PSGI::How::Its::Written::With::What::Module and people call it HSPHIWWWM on IRC. It's hard to say on speeches and newbies would ask questions what they stand for every day. That's crazy. This module actually includes the longer alias and an empty subclass AnyEvent::Server::PSGI for those who like to type more ::'s. It would actually help you find this software by searching for *PSGI Server AnyEvent* on CPAN, which i believe is a good thing. Yes, maybe I'm on drugs. We'll see. LICENSE This module is licensed under the same terms as Perl itself. AUTHOR Tatsuhiko Miyagawa Tokuhiro Matsuno Yuval Kogman Hideki Yamamura Daisuke Maki SEE ALSO Plack AnyEvent Tatsumaki
