Araneida: a free Common Lisp-based web server

Araneida is a small extensible Common Lisp web server for SBCL, originally written as a project to learn CL, but these days maintained because cl-http is not free. It powers CLiki, the Common Lisp Wiki.

Content is provided by exporting URL handlers to cover parts of the server URL space. A handler is a CL object that takes a 'request' as argument and eventually prints out a web page on the stream associated with that request. See e.g.*checkout*/araneida/doc/example.lisp

While it can be used as a standalone web server, it's "optimized" to live behind an appropriately-configured Apache proxy server.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
