As for mongrel2...

Getting the code through fossil is trivial, but be warned that trunk is often unstable and you're probably better off with the latest release. (

The Lua handler API is very green, I've not got around to actually doing anything much with it yet, but I'm interested in seeing and helping people actually do that. So feel free to hit me up via email or github or #mongrel2 on freenode if you have any queries or issues and I'll do what I can to get them sorted.

Here are some appropriate links anyway: of course. mongrel2 manual, a good read. my mongrel2 handler API for Lua. Norman's mongrel2 wsapi adapter using aforementioned API.

Not at all. You're thinking of Mongrel, its predecessor. Mongrel2 has
language-agnosticism as one of its design goals.

Yes, it used to require Python for configuration tools but they have been ported to plain C now.

It is a very interesting piece of software and some of its devs use Lua. The only warning I would give is that their versioning scheme is not what you would expect: the project is very young and I consider 1.0 far from usable in production.

Thank you for the advice.  The devs use Fossil which I always find difficult to navigate and understand.  And it seems quite new.

I'm looking for something that can do comet and this seems to fit the bill.  It was interesting to see the use of ZeroMQ which I looked at recently.
