Twiggy - AnyEvent HTTP server for PSGI (like Thin)
twiggy --listen :8080
See "twiggy -h" for more details.
use Twiggy::Server;
my $server = Twiggy::Server->new(
host => $host,
port => $port,
Twiggy is a lightweight and fast HTTP server with unique features such
Can run any PSGI applications. Fully supports *psgi.nonblocking* and
*psgi.streaming* interfaces.
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, 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
The following environment variables are supported.
Set to true to enable debug messages from Twiggy.
Because it is like 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.
This module is licensed under the same terms as Perl itself.
