A simple, dynamic, decorator-based HTTP server inspired by Node.js's Express. Supports trio, TLS and WebSockets.

Project description

dhttp

dhttp, which is pretty short for decorable HTTP, is a simple, yet dynamic, HTTP server written for Python 3.
It is inspired by Node.js's Express library.

"Decorable" is a reference to how extensively decorators are used throughout this project. They are very useful, and are one of the nicest syntaxes for a callback system like this.

Example code

import dhttp
import random

app = dhttp.DHTTPServer(int(sys.argv[1]) if len(sys.argv) > 1 else 8005)

app.alias('/index', '/')
app.alias('/index.htm', '/')
app.alias('/index.html', '/')

test_index = """<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head>
        <meta charset="utf-8" />
        <title>My first DHTTP server</title>
    </head>

    <body>
        <p><h2>Congratulations!</h2></p>
        <hr>
        <p><b>dhttp {version}</b> is now running on your machine.</p>
        <p>How about <i>{party}</i> to comemorate? :)</p>
    </body>
</html>"""

party_stuff = [
    'a bottle of wine', 'a bottle of champagne', 'a big party',
    'THE party, just', 'THE party', 'lots of cats', 'partyception',
    'balloons and cakes', 'a big-endian cake', 'lots of confetti',
    'the Confetti-o-Tron 2000', 'HTTP juice', 'Spicy Bytes',
    'antimatter', 'cats writing code', 'a smile breaking the 4th wall'
]

@app.get('/')
def serve_index(req, res):
    res.end(test_index.format(
        party = random.choice(party_stuff),
        version = DHTTP_VERSION
    ))

@app.on_log
def print_log(log):
    if log.request.get_header('X-Forwarded-For') is not None:
        log.ip = log.request.get_header('X-Forwarded-For')
        print(log, '  (forwarded)')

    else:
        print(log)

@app.serve_forever
def on_serve():
    print(f"   == Listening on port: {app.port} ==")
