Tiny Python 3 HTTP/1.1 Server
View Tiny Python 3 HTTP 1.1


This is a Python 3 HTTP/1.1 server bound to on port 8000 using only the standard library.


I wanted a simple Python 3 web server using HTTP 1.1 that can perform simple HTTP operations and depends only on Python and standard library modules. I couldn't find an example so I made one.

The example demonstrates how to accept different methods, parse the url and query strings, read data sent to the server, parse and return json, return responses with different status codes and headers, handle graceful termination, and override the default error logging.
