WSAPI is an API that abstracts the web server from Lua web
applications. By coding against WSAPI your application can run on any
of the supported servers and interfaces (currently CGI, FastCGI and
Xavante, on Windows and UNIX-based systems).

WSAPI provides a set of helper libraries that help with request
processing and output buffering. You can also write applications that
act as filters that provide some kind of service to other
applications, such as authentication, file uploads, request isolation,
or multiplexing.

WSAPI's main influence is Ruby's Rack framework, but it was also
influenced by Python's WSGI (PEP 333). It's not a direct clone of
either of them, though, and tries to follow standard Lua idioms.

For more information please check:

WSAPI can be downloaded from its LuaForge page. You can also get WSAPI
using LuaRocks:
luarocks install wsapi

WSAPI is free software and uses the same license as Lua 5.1
