Our great sponsors
  • WorkOS - The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS
  • InfluxDB - Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale

    The React Framework

  • 3. Might be good for this example to load the html from a file or SQLite to fully trivialize the whole stack, as this example doesn’t include the S in the acronym.

    sometimes I think the Next.js examples folder at https://github.com/vercel/next.js/tree/canary/examples is just an amazing example of how best to market a software product to developers because it’s such a rich source of integrations, almost anyone can find a good starting point for a web app project in there, if BCHS had the 80:20 of examples ready to roll then maybe it could blow up, because BCHS a great idea to use the most battle tested solutions in existence! Keep it up! bravo!

  • Mongoose

    Embedded Web Server (by cesanta)

  • I remember using mongoose 15 years back. Today i would have considered mongoose(10k+ stars) which is also a mature c/c++ web server[1] if not the licence.


  • WorkOS

    The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.

  • Apache

    Mirror of Apache HTTP Server. Issues: http://issues.apache.org

  • Simiplicity is nice, but there are reasons why Perl and PHP were the popular choices for web stacks in the early 2000's--they are faster and easier to develop with than C and likely safer than C too.

    mod_perl (https://perl.apache.org/) and mod_php (https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/plugins/servlet/mobile?c...) helped to make Apache httpd (https://httpd.apache.org/) the number one web server in the early days of the web.
