Description

This is a new module for Lighttpd. It adds HTTP streaming and push functionality to Lighttpd. The module is described in detail at http://www.refwell.com/blog/index.php/category/fdajax/

Many people have problems with adding FdAjax sources to Lighttpd and compilation. It would be much easier if the module sources are attached to the main Lighttpd sources distribution package as optional module.

The module currently compiles under Linux and OsX and is distributed under GNU license.

lighttpd itself is under a bsd license atm. i would rather not include a GPL'ed module into lighttpd as it would require us to make the rest of it gpl aswell i think.

Replying to darix:

Frankly speaking I don't know the differences between these licenses. I change the fdajax module license to bsd so it can be included with lighttpd.

This is really an important addition to lighty as we can use server pushing for web applications. Outstanding feature in my opinion.

The linked site is down, and without docs i don't even think about adding this.
And i don't think it provides a generic interface via fastcgi or something similar...

Updated by gregd over 8 years ago

The module provides simple generic interface via HTTP.

If the module will be included with main Lighttpd sources then I'll cleanup docs and update Lighttpd doc wiki pages.

Updated by scramatte over 8 years ago

fdajax will be very usefull module. We take a look to another comet solutions. For us, meteor perl server or cometp are not an option.
I really hope that fdajax will be integrated in Lighthttpd trunk. Does the latest release (0.9) compile with lighttpd trunk ?

This was a substantial contribution. Thank you! I hope that others have made good use of this over the past decade.

Today, HTML5 websockets are superior to AJAX for full-duplex communication with browser clients.

lighttpd 1.4.46 mod_proxy will support Upgrade: websocket and will act as transparent proxy to a backend which handles websockets.

If anyone is interested in working with me to port this lighttpd chat module from AJAX to websockets so that this application runs inside lighttpd, please post here or join #lighttpd on freenode IRC. The result might be a combination of this mod_fdajax and https://github.com/nori0428/mod_websocket
