Brook framework

Support this project via PayPal GitHub releases License: LGPL v2.1

Overview

Brook is a cross-platform microframework which helps to develop web Pascal applications built by Delphi or Lazarus IDE and Free Pascal. Its core has been developed using the Sagui library, that’s why it is so fast, compact and useful to run on embedded systems.

Features

Examples

The example below shows a minimal hello world HTTP server:

type
  THTTPServer = class(TBrookHTTPServer)
  protected
    procedure DoRequest(ASender: TObject; ARequest: TBrookHTTPRequest;
      AResponse: TBrookHTTPResponse); override;
  end;

procedure THTTPServer.DoRequest(ASender: TObject; ARequest: TBrookHTTPRequest;
  AResponse: TBrookHTTPResponse);
begin
  AResponse.Send('Hello world', 'text/plain', 200);
end;

begin
  with THTTPServer.Create(nil) do
  try
    Port := 8080;
    if not Active then
      Exit;
    WriteLn('Server running at http://localhost:', Port);
    Open;
    ReadLn;
  finally
    Free;
  end;
end.

There are other examples available in the Examples directory.
