We are currently working on a HTML5 style app called MashupBots.
We wanted an open source, lightweight and embeddable Scala web server that can serve static files and support RESTful APIs to our business logic implemented in Akka.
We do not need a web application framework: server side templating, caching, session management, etc.
We couldn't find a web server that exactly met our requirements, so we decided to write one.
We hope you find it as useful as we do.
