High performance HTTP 1.1 webserver written in Erlang
Yaws is a high performance HTTP 1.1 webserver written in Erlang. It is a
multithreaded webserver where one Erlang light weight process is used to
handle each client. Two separate modes of operation are supported.
Standalone mode where Yaws runs as a regular webserver daemon. This is the
Embedded mode where Yaws runs as an embedded webserver in another Erlang
The main advantages of yaws compared to other Web technologies are
performance and elegance. The performance comes from the underlying Erlang
system and its ability to handle concurrent processes in an efficent way.
Its elegance comes from Erlang as well. Web applications don't have to be
written in ugly adhoc languages.
