Cherokee web server

2009-08-10 , ,

In the past I’ve used NginX for a development web server but I stumbled across the Cherokee http server recently which fits my criteria of small, fast, lightweight, trivial to build on unix-like systems and easy to configure.

Whatever the project’s intentions, the result is perfect for my style of semi-disconnected development on my laptop with an instance per work dir listening on the loopback and independently serving different components. It has a combined rsize under 2MB for the workers and the controller meaning it’s dwarfed by the reset of my tools (like Firefox and Emacs) and it’s trivial to configure thanks an included web-based admin tool.
