<p>The modestly named Yaws &#x2014; "Yet Another Web Server" &#x2014; is an open source Erlang Web server known for its reliability, stability, and scalability. It started in 2001 as the brainchild of legendary Erlang programmer Claes "Klacke" Wikstr&#x00F6;m, who also invented several important Erlang features, including Erlang term storage (ets), Distributed Erlang, the Mnesia database, and the Erlang bit syntax. Yaws is a general-purpose HTTP 1.1 Web server consisting of a relatively simple core surrounded by implementations of a wide variety of features such as file serving, response streaming, AJAX support, websockets, support for CGI and FCGI, and application embedding. This column details some of the features of Yaws.</p>
