Yet another async web server

Project description

What’s Pyx?

Pyx is yet another async web server written in Python, with the asyncio module.

It’s small and simple. It has no dependency at all except Python itself.

Yet Pyx is also carefully crafted to behave nicely in stressful and dangerous enviroments.

How to install?

Just use pip or tools alike:

pip install pyxserver

What can Pyx do?

Pyx is a simple static file server by itself:

pyx -b localhost -p 8000 -r /some/where

This will start pyx and bind it to localhost:8000, serving files in the directory /some/where

And you can also use the small framework provided by Pyx to write your own dynamic web application:

import asyncio
from pyx import (HttpHeader, HttpConnectionCB)

@asyncio.coroutine
def req_cb(req):
    resp = req.respond(200)
    resp.headers.append(HttpHeader('Content-Length', 5))
    resp.headers.append(HttpHeader('Content-Type', 'text/plain'))
    yield from resp.send()
    yield from resp.send_body(b'hello')

loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()

conn_cb = HttpConnectionCB(req_cb)
starter = asyncio.start_server(conn_cb, '127.0.0.1', 8080, loop=loop)
_server = loop.run_until_complete(starter)

loop.run_forever()

Please see the implementation of pyx.http.StaticRootResource for a more sophisticated example.
