redbean makes it possible to share web applications that run offline
as an single-file executable zip archive which contains your assets.
All you need to do is download the
below, change the filename to .zip, add your content in a zip tool
like Windows 10 or InfoZIP, and change the extension back to .com.
redbean can serve 1 million+ gzip encoded responses per second on a cheap personal computer. That performance is thanks to zip and gzip using the same compression format, which enables kernelspace copies. Another reason redbean goes fast is that it's a tiny static binary, which makes fork memory paging nearly free.
redbean is also easy to modify to suit your own needs. The program itself is written as a single .c file.
curl https://storage.googleapis.com/justine/redbean/redbean.com >redbean.com chmod +x redbean.com bash ./redbean.com -vv
echo '<b>hello</b>' >index.html zip redbean.com index.html ./redbean.com -vv curl -v http://127.0.0.1:8080/index.html
Assets can be listed by running the following command:
unzip -vl redbean.com # lists files
Assets can be added to the zip archive as follows:
zip redbean.com index.html # adds file
By default, anything you add to the archive gets compressed. Sometimes you don't want that to happen. A good example is video files. The web browser will want to send HTTP range requests to seek in the video, in which case redbean requires that the asset be uncompressed.
zip -0 redbean.com video.mp4 # adds file without compression
Each connection uses a point in time snapshot of your ZIP file. If your ZIP is deleted then serving continues. If it's replaced then issuing SIGUSR1 (or SIGHUP if daemon) will reindex the zip for subsequent connections without interrupting active ones. If SIGINT or SIGTERM is issued then a graceful shutdown is started but if it's issued a second time, active connections are reset.
