Readme

The Unix Webserver

Uses toml config file to map http routes to executables.

Example config.toml

"/" = "./echo.sh"

When you curl host:3000?FOO=bar it calls echo.sh with the FOO=bar environment variable.

#!/bin/bash
echo This is a bash script. FOO is equal to $FOO

Echos This is a bash script. FOO is equal to bar

This works for any executable

Another example:

config.toml

"/time" = "date"

Shell output

$ curl localhost:3000/time

The idea is to have a webserver that follows the Unix Philosophy
