The Kitura-net module contains logic for sending and receiving HTTP requests. It also contains the structure for listening on a port and sending requests to a delegate for processing. It can be used to create HTTP/CGI servers on specific ports, and provides HTTP functionality.
We expect most of our users to require higher level concepts such as routing, templates and middleware, these are not provided in Kitura-net, if you want to use those facilities you should be coding at the Kitura level, for this please see the Kitura project. Kitura-net underpins Kitura which offers a higher abstraction level to users.
- Port Listening
- FastCGI Server support
- HTTP Server support (request and response)
