Scrinchy iconScrinchy 0.15

Scrinchy is a tiny HTTP multitasking webserver.
Scrinchy is a tiny HTTP multitasking webserver that I wrote for my own purposes, but which is also a fitting response to the now fairly bloated Apache.

Its name derives from an obscure English verb "to scrinch" which generally means to willfully compress a thing which is not very large into a smaller size. For instance "to scrinch your eyes". This is apt, because Scrinchy is a project where the goal is constantly to make it smaller but yet as feature-rich as possible.

Scrinchy is capable of serving HTML, JPG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and various other file types, as well as running Perl, Python and (theoretically) PHP scripts externally and passing GET params and cookies to those scripts. At this stage, Scrinchy does not support POST but it will later.

Scrinchy also has some anti-hacker features, described in the README file. The more I use the server myself and observe all the hair-brained things attackers and infected computers do, the more amusement I find in squashing their pitiful efforts.
