Kore.io python support In recent days Kore finally got python support merged in. It was an interesting experiment. I’ve learned a bit more about CPython API. And now I am much more confident in embedding python and scripting runtime in general into C apps. My experimental code didn’t make it directly into the kore codebase because I was essentially monkey patching each internal callback with switch to call into python.
How python found it’s way into Kore So I couldn’t help myself and got into tweaking and hacking Kore. It is such an awesome tool for clean and clear C networking and http(s). But C being C means it is still time consuming to iterate changes and see how they affect your application. I am using Kore now to build Servo, but it takes more time to get this thing running.
Rise and fall of (Fast)CGI Early days of services development for internet were pretty dark. At the very beginning there little to no reason to have any actual logic in the back of a web page because page of the nature of those pages. HTML back in 1999 was meant to be read and mostly by a very few people. And such as there was no need to pass anything back to server, there was no backend.
