Is there a plan to include a small web server into the lib ? I would looking for a function allowing to serve simple websites to a local browser and to use HTML, JS and UI to an else service running in background.
Any proven good alternatives ?
I would say there's no such thing as a simple web server. If Chilkat were to introduce a simple HTTP server-side class to receive HTTP requests and respond, then it would quickly prove to be inadequate. Each user would find some feature that he/she needed. Everybody would find themselves in the situation where the simple HTTP server covers 95% of the needs. But collectively, it's the vast number of features that comprise the last 5% that is the bulk of the project..
Anyway.. an easy way to receive an HTTP request is to write code using Chilkat.Socket that does the following:
Of course, there are all sorts of situations. What if the request is "chunked"? What about compression? What about multipart requests? Etc..
