Raze

Raze for days.

Raze is a lightweight HTTP framework with a focus on building APIs and containerized services. If you want a more general purpose framwork with static file serving, check out Kemal.

Installation

Add this to your application's shard.yml:

dependencies:
  raze:
    github: samueleaton/raze

Usage

require "raze"

get "/hello" do |ctx|
  "hello, world!"
end

Raze.run

Raze takes a modular-first approach to middlewares

require "raze"

# Define middlewares
class Authenticator < Raze::Handler
  def call(ctx, done)
    puts "Authenticate here..."
    done.call
  end
end

class DDoSBlocker < Raze::Handler
  def call(ctx, done)
    puts "Prevent DDoS attack here..."
    done.call
  end
end

class UserFetcher < Raze::Handler
  def call(ctx, done)
    # Fetch user record from DB here...
    ctx.state["user_name"] = "Sam"
    done.call
  end
end

# Define routes, attach middlewares
get "/api/**", [Authenticator.new, DDoSBlocker.new]

get "/api/user/:user_id", UserFetcher.new do |ctx|
  "hello, #{ctx.state["user_name"]}!"
end

Raze.run

TODO

Core

  • [ ] Be able to run a stack of middlewares before the static file handler
  • [ ] Remove all global scoping (e.g. get "/" -> Raze.get "/")
  • [ ] Live reload functionality for development
  • [ ] Be able to define middlewares globally (for all routes)

Middlewares

  • [ ] Urlencoded and JSON body parser
  • [ ] Multipart/form-data body parser
  • [ ] Static asset caching
    • should take a cache time interval and be able to take a path match regex
  • [ ] Route caching
    • be able to cache the response for a route for a predetermined time interval
  • [ ] Favicon caching
  • [ ] CORS response header
  • [ ] Access logger
  • [ ] Session tracking
  • [ ] Proxy middleware
  • [ ] Security Headers
