Arachnida is an embeddable Web server. It uses the OpenSSL library and consists of a small framework for networking that allows you to asynchronously accept and handle connections using a "new connection handler" to handle new connections and a "data handler" to handle incoming data. This makes it possible to add support for any TCP/IP based protocol by just adding a handler. A test suite is included.
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.
Local Media Browser lets you access your collection of digital media files from a Web browser. It is designed for (but not limited to) low-powered clients (like the Nintendo Wii) on low-resolution displays (like TVs). It uses its own specialized Web server. It is fully customizable through easy HTML-templates, CSS, and ini-files. It currently supports picture and music files. It supports indexing and caching of information (such as thumbnails and ID3 tags) for fast browsing as well as on-the-fly gathering.
Lumbricidae WORM (Widget Object Relational Mapper) is an SQLAlchemy binding for Webwidgets. SQLAlchemy presents database tables and rows as Python classes and objects. Webwidgets is a framework for writing Web applications as if they were desktop applications. WORM lets you easily map Webwidgets input fields, tables, and other widgets to database mapped classes, instances, and attributes. It requires the Argentum SQLAlchemy convenience library.
PasTmon (Passive Application Response Time Monitor) passively monitors your application servers, measuring and reporting user response times, throughput and congestion. It currently works with HTTP, telnet, rlogin, rsh, FTP (control channel), SMTP, POP3, and IRC. Measurements are recorded in a PostgreSQL database and are presented graphically via a PHP Web front-end using R statistical analysis scripts to create the plots.
Rainbows! is an HTTP server for sleepy Rack applications. It is based on Unicorn, but designed to handle applications that expect long request/response times and/or slow clients. For Rack applications not heavily bound by slow external network dependencies, consider Unicorn instead as it simpler and easier to debug.
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.
