Documentation you need

Defining more than one endpoint

Every function marked with ```@endpoint``` is called until one writes something to output

The calling order is defined by `@priority`

import serverino;
mixin ServerinoMain;

// This function will never block the execution of other endpoints since it doesn't write anything to output
// In this case `output` param is not needed and this works too: `@priority(10) @endpoint void logger(Request req)`
@priority(10) @endpoint void logger(Request req, Output output)
   import std.experimental.logger; // std.experimental.logger works fine!

// We accept only GET request in this example
@priority(5) @endpoint void checkMethod(Request req, Output output)
   if (req.method != Request.Method.Get)
      // We set a 405 (method not allowed) status here. 
      // If we change the output no other endpoints will be called.
      output.status = 405;

// This endpoint (default priority == 0) handles the homepage
// Request and Output can be used in @safe code
@endpoint void hello(Request req, Output output)
   // Skip this endpoint if uri is not "/"
   if (req.uri != "/") return;

   output ~= "Hello world!";

// This function will be executed only if `hello(...)` doesn't write anything to output.
@priority(-10000) @endpoint void notfound(const Request req, Output output)
   output.status = 404;
   output ~= "Not found";

@onServerInit UDA

Use `@onServerInit` to configure your server

// Try also `setup(string args[])` if you need to read arguments passed to your application
@onServerInit ServerinoConfig setup()
   ServerinoConfig sc = ServerinoConfig.create(); // Config with default params
   sc.addListener("", 8080);
   sc.addListener("", 8081);
   sc.addListener!(ServerinoConfig.ListenerProtocol.IPV6)("localhost", 8082); // IPV6
   // etc...

   return sc;

Shielding the whole thing

I would not put serverino into the wild. For using in production I suggest shielding serverino under a full webserver.

Using nginx

It's pretty easy. Just add these lines inside your nginx configuration:

server {
   listen 80 default_server;
   listen [::]:80 default_server;
   location /your_path/ {
      proxy_set_header Host $host;
      proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
      proxy_pass http://localhost:8080;

If you want to enable keepalive (between nginx and serverino) you must use an upstream:

upstream your_upstream_name {
  server localhost:8080;
  keepalive 64;

server {
   listen 80 default_server;
   listen [::]:80 default_server;

   location /your_path/ {
      proxy_set_header Connection "";
      proxy_http_version 1.1;
      proxy_set_header Host $host;
      proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
      proxy_pass http://your_upstream_name;

Using apache2

Enable proxy module for apache2:

sudo a2enmod proxy
sudo a2enmod proxy_http

Add a proxy in your virtualhost configuration:

<VirtualHost *:80>
   ProxyPass "/"  "http://localhost:8080/"
