A compact web server is targeted for rapid design of server-side web applications. Using the Lua scripting language, the Mako Server from Real Time Logic offers fast, efficient development of web applications, ranging from database-driven business applications to customized applications managing microcontroller-based devices. Mako Server offers extremely fast dynamic content generation, outstripping other web technologies by as much as 60 percent. 

Mako Server removes the complexity of deploying a web application. To develop web applications, developers must typically integrate and configure many components such as Apache, PHP and an SQL database. In contrast, Mako Server brings all of these components together, bundling them into one unit so that the application developer can immediately focus on application development for Windows, Mac OS and Linux or on devices such as Raspberry Pi. Facilitating easy application deployment, developers can bundle their application into a single zip file so that users can download and run the application just as they would a Windows-based application. 

Mako Server’s comprehensive library, based on Real Time Logic’s flagship product Barracuda Application Server, integrates and streamlines all resources needed for a very fast web-server back end. In addition to the Lua Server Pages and virtual machine, the Barracuda Application Server library includes REST, AJAX, SOAP, JSON and XML services; an SMTP client; both client and server SSL/TLS security; client HTTPS; the WebDAV file exchange protocol, and a process management API. An SQL database is also integrated into Mako Server. All components have been optimized for robust, high-speed information exchange, even on underpowered computers.

The Lua scripting language is easy to learn, typically requiring only an afternoon for developers who have used the ASP or PHP server scripting technologies. Developers with C/C++ experience can extend the server with new functionality by loading C libraries at runtime.

Mako Server is available as binary executable for Windows, Mac and Linux platforms and other POSIX-based systems. Hobbyists and educational institutions developing applications exclusively for non-commercial use can acquire Mako Server for free. Single-user business licenses are available for $85 with deeply discounted multiuser licenses available. Companies requiring source code or other development platforms are advised to purchase Real Time Logic’s flagship product, Barracuda Application Server.
