A simple web-server
simple-server crate is designed to give you the tools to to build
an HTTP server, based around the http crate, blocking I/O, and a
We call it 'simple' want to keep the code small, and easy to understand. This is why we're only using blocking I/O. Depending on your needs, you may or may not want to choose another server. However, just the simple stuff is often enough for many projects.
At its core,
simple-server contains a

listen method is used
to start handling connections.
The other types are from the
http crate, and give you the ability

ResponseBuilder types are used by the handler you give to
