Very Simple Web Server
an open source web server made in GameMaker

Get it at: verysimplewebserver.com


VSWS is an open source web server made mostly natively in GameMaker Studio 2

The current version ( 0.3 ) is capable of:

- Hosting HTML and other files (images, executables, really any files you throw at it) in native GML
- Plugging into PHP (and potentially other CGI applications) through @Samuel Venable 's process_info extension


We're currently working on:

- Better HTTP request parsing & more flexible serving (ie, accepting POST requests to allow for file uploading, etc)
- Server auto-updating
- Theme files
- CGI application flexibility (ie, being able to link file types to CGI apps beyond just PHP)
- Server-side caching & speed boosts

I'd love to hear your thoughts and requests here, but you can also join us (and help with development) by hanging out on Discord: https://discord.gg/UHjbUMX

This is honestly one of the most insane implementations I've seen in GM for a very long time.

Hats off to you, good sir. Incredible work!

Hah, I feel like that should be our new tagline for the project

Thank you! It's been some interesting work for the last few months but I'm excited to see what folks use it to make with it (there are really endless possibilities to use this in GameMaker projects) and to keep improving it.
