Flexible replacement for libevent httpd API
Libevhtp was created as a replacement API for Libevent’s current HTTP API. The reality of libevent’s http interface is that it was created as a JIT server, meaning the developer never thought of it being used for creating a full-fledged HTTP service. The maintainer is under the impression that the libevent http API was designed almost as an example of what you can do with libevent. It’s not Apache in a box, but more and more developers are attempting to use it as such.
