I've argued similar things before in other forums (that
apps in future might embed their own HTTP handling). But
I didn't see it being a case of using a pure Lua, pure
Ruby, pure Python etc solution.
HTTP handling is not very resource consuming. It's what you do with it
which takes time. Irrespectively of implementation details.
Rather I expected folk
would settle on some fast, easily wrapped C library.
One that looks nice is Libebb.
I would settle on a simple, battle proof library for MIME handling.
Not very interested in a full stack network run loop though.
But as I pointed out, (F|S)CGI isn't a performance tool.
Its purpose is to abstract the web server away from the
application. For a lot of people, that matters.
More power to them!
I am happy in this case to agree to (partly) disagree.
Hmmm... right... ok :))
