Yaws — “Yet Another Web Server” — is an open source Erlang web server started by Claes “Klacke” Wikström in 2001. It is a full-featured scalable web server that can run standalone or be embedded into other applications. Yaws supports a very long list of features ranging from old-school CGI to modern-day WebSockets, all driven by the needs of real-world applications. Even though it’s an 11 year old project, Yaws is still under active development, continuing to gain features and enhancements as requested by its many users in the Erlang community.
In this talk, Steve, a committer on the Yaws project since 2008, will provide an overview of Yaws and its many features, and will show code examples to highlight some of those features. Steve will also discuss some of the internals of Yaws as well as explaining his general thoughts on the incredible power that Erlang brings to web development and distributed systems.
