nack -- Node powered Rack server

DESCRIPTION

INSTALL

nack is distributed as 2 packages.

You can grab the javascript client from npm.

npm install nack

The ruby server is available on RubyGems.

gem install nack

DEPENDENCIES

  • node >= 0.2.3
  • node-netstring
  • rack
  • json

EXAMPLES

Simple proxy

var http = require('http');
var nack = require('nack');

var app = nack.createProcess("/path/to/app/config.ru");

http.createServer(function (req, res) {
  app.proxyRequest(req, res);
}).listen(8124, "127.0.0.1");

You can spawn up a pool of workers with:

var nack = require('nack');
nack.createPool("/path/to/app/config.ru", { size: 3 });

Workers can idle out after a period of inactivity:

// Timeout after 15m
nack.createPool("/path/to/app/config.ru", { idle: 15 * 60 * 1000 });

Connect API:

var connect = require('connect');
var nack    = require('nack');

connect.createServer(
  connect.logger(),
  connect.vhost('foo.test',
    connect.createServer(nack("/u/apps/foo/config.ru"))
  )
).listen(3000);

CAVEATS

nack was design to be used as a local development proxy. You probably don't wanna try running a production app on it. I'm sure its slow too so don't send me any benchmarks.
