Write a web server in almost any language.
Lantern is a generic web server which wraps any application and allows it to respond to HTTP requests. The request body and headers are passed to
stdin as JSON, and anything sent to
stdout is returned to the client.
Is this useful? Not really.
Isn’t this basically just CGI? Yeah kinda.
Should this be used for production deployments? Definitely not!
It’s just a fun experiment with
sanic and async programming in its early days.
