Projects / yaws


Yaws is a WWW technology with capabilities similar to the combination of Apache with PHP and a database. Yaws runs faster, with smaller footprint, higher scalability, and higher reliability. Subjectively speaking, it uses a more beautiful technique to generate dynamic pages than other similar technologies.
