[Abandoned] SIMPL project would help to create a mod-simpl for the lighttpd server

Added by bobicanprogram almost 14 years ago

The SIMPL project brings the Send/Receive/Reply messaging paradigm to Linux. This approach has a very clean API of only 5 common functions and was pioneered by QNX almost 30 years ago.

SIMPL (http://www.icanprogram.com/simpl) has been around for almost 10 years now. As niche open source projects go it has been quite successful. One of the missing elements in the SIMPL toolbox has been the ability to interface SIMPL messaging with an HTTP server. ie. allow browser based interfaces to participate in SIMPL applications.

SIMPL applications consist of 2 or more SIMPL modules (separate Linux executables). SIMPL modules can be written in any of the supported languages (Python, Tcl/Tk or C) and mixed together transparently in a SIMPL application. With the use of TCP/IP surrogates SIMPL modules can readily be distributed on a TCP/IP network without the developer having to code for that case. Many SIMPL modules are built and tested locally and deployed out on a network without even a recompile (or any other code changes).

We are looking for a volunteer with lighttpd module creation experience to help us up the learning curve associated with creating a SIMPL module for the lighttpd server. If you are interested (or know of someone who is) please feel free to contact me offlist.

Obviously that title should read.
