Quickly create HTTP servers from functions!

Module Documentation

Getting Started

A single endpoint which returns plain text:

server :: GET String
server = pure "Hello, World!"

main = do
  let opts = { hostname: "localhost", port: 3000, backlog: Nothing }
  quickServe opts server

Parsing Requests

Use a function argument with type RequestBody a to read the request body:

server :: RequestBody String -> POST String
server (RequestBody s) = pure s

JSON

Instead of Strings, values which support the Decode and Encode classes from purescript-foreign-generic can be used as JSON request and response types respectively. See the test project for an example.

Effects

The GET/POST monad has instances for MonadEff and MonadAff to lift synchronous and asynchronous effects.

Routing

Routing tables are defined using records of functions, where the record's labels are used to match routes. See the test project for an example.

Routing tables can be nested.
