NAME

Twiggy - AnyEvent HTTP server for PSGI

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.

  • Fast header parser

    Uses XS/C based HTTP header parser for the best performance. (optional, install the HTTP::Parser::XS module to enable it; see also Plack::HTTPParser for more information).

  • 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.

    To use it, instead of the usual:

      plackup --server Twiggy --port 8111 app.psgi
    

    install Server::Starter and use:

      start_server --port 8111 -- plackup --server Twiggy app.psgi
    

ENVIRONMENT

The following environment variables are supported.

  • TWIGGY_DEBUG

    Set to true to enable debug messages from Twiggy.

LICENSE

This module is licensed under the same terms as Perl itself.
