What it is

Note that like many of my Open Source projects, trivial-http does not see much love. You're welcome to use and extend it and I'll try to support it but there are probably better choices out there...

Until a few days (well, by now it's years...) ago, trivial-http was simple-http and simple-http was a fork of Brian Mastenbrook's trivial-http. Brian has kindly offered to let me continue the trivial tradition and so trivial-http is reborn ready to stumble forth again. It adds several features and bug fixes and works more the way I'd like it to. Where its functionality overlaps with what was trivial-http, it performs exactly the same.

Where it is

metabang.com is switching from darcs to git for source control; the current trivial-http repository is on github and you can clone it using:

git clone git://github.com/gwkkwg/trivial-http 

trivial-http is also ASDF-installable. Its CLiki home is right where you'd expect. Finally, there is a also a handy gzipped tar file.

What is happening

2011-02-12 - Moved to github

2008-September-1 - Fixed horribly dumb bug wherein HTTP-GET was doing an HTTP HEAD! Added more tests and some very minor restructuring

2008-July-27 - Thanks to Brian Mastenbrook for letting me take the name. The other big news is that trivial-http is now based on usocket rather than trivial-socket.
