A little web server in PHP.

== Installation

You'll need the httpparser extension, it's a PHP extension for the C http parser from the mongrel web server:

* http://github.com/dhotson/httpparser-php

== Usage

An simple web application:

class HelloWorldApp
	public function call($env)
		return array(
			array("Content-Type" => "text/plain"),
			array("hello world")

The interface is basically the same as Ruby's Rack:

* http://chneukirchen.org/blog/archive/2007/02/introducing-rack.html

To start the server:

require_once '/path/to/kelpie/lib/kelpie_init.php';
$server = new Kelpie_Server('', 8000);
$server->start(new HelloWorldApp());

== Credits

This little project is heavily inspired by the Thin web server and the Rack web server interface.

A lot of the classes are a direct port of Ruby classes in Thin.

I can't claim much credit in writing them.

Thanks go to the guys who created Thin and Rack:

The http parser is from Mongrel http://mongrel.rubyforge.org by Zed Shaw. Mongrel Web Server (Mongrel) is copyrighted free software by Zed A. Shaw You can redistribute it and/or modify it under either the terms of the GPL.

I also blatantly stole Chris Corbyn's PHP autoloader from Swift Mailer:
