The yaSSL Embedded Web Server is a fast, embeddable, and easy-to-configure Web server with a strong focus on portability and security. The Web server offers SSL/TLS (HTTPS) support built-in through the CyaSSL embedded SSL Library. With a footprint size of less than 100kB with SSL enabled (or 40kB without SSL) and a simple and clean API, the yaSSL Embedded Web Server was designed to fit perfectly into resource-constrained embedded environments. While maintaining a small size and fast speeds, the yaSSL Embedded Web Server offers a full feature set to give you the maximum amount of freedom and flexibility when developing your project.
Kangee is a personal on-demand fileserver that makes it possible to send files to your friends. Dragging a file into the Kangee window will generate a link, which can be sent to your friend, who may open it in a Web browser and download the file. It also supports an "Add Upload" feature, which generates a link that lets your friends send files to you. It uses UPnP, STUN, and a connection test Web service to set up incoming connections, and can generate QR codes from the links to uploads and downloads.
QtWebApp allows you to write standalone Web server applications in C++ as easily as Java Servlets. The HTTP 1.1 server supports persistent connections, sessions with cookies, and file uploads. It contains a template engine and a logger that can be configured at runtime. The application runs on Unix as a daemon, on Windows as a service, and on all operating systems on the command line. It is based on Nokia QT 4.7. Compatibility with QT 4.8 and 5.0 has been verified successfully.
Ashd is an HTTP server that follows standard Unix philosophy for modularity. Instead of being a monolithic program with loadable modules, as most other HTTP servers seem to be, Ashd is simply a collection of much simpler programs, passing HTTP requests to each other using a simple protocol. The model also allows such handler programs to persist properly, so that, for example, session data can be kept in memory, connections to back-end services can be kept open, and so on.
Zbatery is an HTTP server for Rack applications on systems that either do not support fork(), or have no memory (nor need) to run the master/worker model. It is based on Rainbows! (which is based on Unicorn (which is based on Mongrel)) and inherits parts of each. Zbatery supports your choice of all the thread/fiber/event/actor-based concurrency models and Rack middleware that Rainbows! supports (or will ever support) in a single process. Zbatery will still exploit certain features of Unix for transparent upgrades, log reopening, and graceful stops, but does not rely on them for basic functionality.
mod_reserve is an Apache2 module for Linux that extends the Apache HTTP server, allowing it to reserve a certain CPU bandwidth for the provisioning of a service. This module exploits the functionality provided by AQuoSA, whose API is used to reserve CPU bandwidth for execution of tasks. In this way, the module can force the Web server to provide services, like CGI or Perl scripts, using exactly the configured CPU bandwidth. This behaviour is useful in order to provide Quality of Service to certain types of services, or to prevent the kinds of attacks in which a service can starve all the others.
httpico is yet another lightweight HTTP server. It implements a few HTML rewriting rules delineated by '<?pico>' tags, and makes it fairly easy to add more straight into the C code. It does not have complete HTTP standards compliance. It also contains a 'genstats' log analysis tool.
