HTTP::Easy

Introduction

Perl 6 libraries to make HTTP servers easily.

This was inspired by HTTP::Server::Simple, but has a very different internal API, and extended functionality. It's been designed to work well with my own Web::App and SCGI libraries. Also see my HTTP::Client library if you are looking for an HTTP client rather than an HTTP server.

HTTP::Easy

A role to build HTTP daemon classes with. This provides the framework for parsing HTTP connections.

HTTP::Easy::PSGI

A class implementing HTTP::Easy. This builds a PSGI environment, and passes it onto a handler. The handler must return a PSGI response:

  [ $status, @headers, @body ]

This can be used as an engine in the Web::App library.

Example

  use HTTP::Easy::PSGI;
  my $http = HTTP::Easy::PSGI.new(:port(8080));

  my $app = sub (%env)
  {
    my $name = %env<QUERY_STRING> || "World";
    return [ 200, [ 'Content-Type' => 'text/plain' ], [ "Hello $name" ] ];
  }

  $http.handle($app);

Requirements

  • HTTP::Status

TODO

  • Implement HTTP/1.1 features such as Transfer-Encoding, etc.
