NOTE: This project has been replaced by a golang port:
This repository contains the code for a simple daemon which provides an online DNS-lookup service.
The service responds to requests received via HTTP with a JSON-encoded response. In the event of error this response will be empty.
This application is written in Perl, and almost all parts of this code are trivial.
- The HTTP-server uses Dancer
- The rate-limiting is applied via Plack::Middleware::Throttle::Lite
- The DNS lookups are achieved via Net::DNS::Resolver
Once this repository is cloned you may launch it via the provided
run script, which will cause the deamon to start on port 5001.
To deploy for the real world you'll need to install the dependencies and place behind a reverse HTTP-proxy:
# apt-get install twiggy libdancer-perl libnet-cidr-lite-perl libplack-middleware-reverseproxy-perl
