OTM: A web server with a "One Track Mind"

(Printer friendly version)

Last night I decided to sit down and write a web server from scratch. Since it seems to be reasonably feature complete at this point, I've decided to unleash it upon the world. (The only thing I can think of to add would be a GUI for those who are command-line phobic).

I've named it OTM since it is a webserver with a "one track mind." And when I say one track mind, I mean it. The differentiating feature of this web server is that it will respond to every single request the same way!

Possibilities include:

Before you laugh, I can think there of a couple of niches where this type of web server could hit a sweet spot...

  1. When you need to take a website down for maitenance, but don't want to muck with changing your regular webservers configuration—just shutdown the regular webserver and fire up OTM with a placeholder message.
  2. When you want someone to be able to snag a specific file off of your desktop quickly & painlessly.

Here's a link to the source code. Like my NNTP proxy, it is written in Tcl.

It works great, except that I can't figure out how to make it give up the port in a graceful shutdown. Once I've stopped my regular web server for maintenance and started up OTM, I can't start the original server successfully without logging off and back on again.
