C++ based webserver and application server?

Post by grant »

Hi, An area of great concern to me is the need to run "web-app-servers" to supply APIs like REST, as well as websockets to mobile and desktop clients.

Qt does not supply a Http server, while it does have a client.

Are you planning to produce a set of c++ http classes (or full daemon) on the order of Microsoft Kesterel, Node.js? Or can you recommend a library or webserver written in c++?

++Regards

Hi Grant,

An HTTP server is not something in our current roadmap. If this is something you are interested in contributing to, let us know and we would be happy to discuss it further.

Thanks for the suggestions,
Ansel

Hi Grant,

This post looks pretty old, but just in case anyone else is interested I have had a lot of success with QtWebApp for this need.

I used Peppermill to convert it to Copperspice.
One note is that I am using an older version (2019_12_23) since I haven't gone through the process of updating it for a while.
