Elserv: Yet another HTTP server on Emacsen
Project Summary on SourceForge
[Japanese | English]
Elserv is an HTTP server which runs on Emacs.
Since Emacs does not support server sockets, Elserv runs dedicated server
process (ruby script) as a backend process and communicate with it to
provide a server feature on Emacs.
Easy to start a web server (Just execute an emacs command).
Dynamic content can be developed using emacs lisp.
Contents can be replaced by simply `eval'uating the lisp code.
HTTP 1.1 GET, HEAD, POST is supported.
Newest version is 0.4.0.
- Extract tarball.
- Type `make install'. (If you want to install as XEmacs package, type `make install-package')
- Debian package is also available.
Call (require 'elserv), then execute `elserv-start'. it invokes a new server.
It listens on port 8000 (by default setting).
You can register your own content by the function `elserv-publish'.
Access logs are recorded on the buffer "*Log of elserv*".
The command `elserv-stop' or killing the buffer "*elserv*" stops the server process.
es-demo.el is a sample server for demonstration.
es-wiki.el is an interface for emacs-wiki.
es-mhc.el is an interface for MHC.
remote.el is a web based remote controller for Emacs.
web-custom.el is web version of custom.
Here is an Elserv demo video via emacs-w3m.
