seHTTPd

seHTTPd implements a small and efficient web server with 1K lines of C code. I/O multiplexing is achieved using epoll.

Features

  • Single-threaded, non-blocking I/O based on event-driven model
  • HTTP persistent connection (HTTP Keep-Alive)
  • A timer for executing the handler after having waited the specified time

Build from Source

At the moment, seHTTPd supports Linux based systems with epoll system call. Building seHTTPd is straightforward.

$ make

By default the server accepts connections on port 8081, if you want to assign other port for the server, modify file src/mainloop.c and build again.
