Stick is a modular JSGI middleware composition layer and application framework based on RingoJS.
Stick provides an
Application object that can be used to compose web
applications out of JSGI middleware components. Middleware can in turn
define methods or properties on the application object to make itself
configurable to the outside world.
Currently Stick comes with the following middleware modules:
- basicauth - basic HTTP authentication
- continuation - generator-based async requests
- error - generating error pages
- etag - ETag based conditional GET
- gzip - GZip content encoding
- method - HTTP method overriding
- mount - mounting other applications
- notfound - generating 404 pages
- params - form data parsing
- render - mustache.js templates
- requestlog - collecting per-request log messages
- route - Sinatra-like request routing
- session - session support
- static - serving static files
upload - handling file uploads
