This thread is a few days old now, but I wanted to remark. I
integrated yaws into one of my releases a few years ago and I do have
to admit that it was difficult, but not in a hard to compile or link
or whatever kind of way, but in that all the documentation I found on
embedding was out of date and did not work. Eventually I found the
magic incantation to get yaws to embed and it was indeed rather dead
easy. Nowadays I still use yaws as an embedded web server, but I am
starting another project that will be using a few binary and one
textual data format on the wire, and I think that I will look at
cowboy for it to see how well it will fit, and yes I will still likely
have yaws embedded in it (as I already have a few 'management'
interfaces for my systems made in it). They each seem to be different
in what they supply and I welcome both.
And for note, I quite love yaws, but one thing that it really needs to
improve on is its documentation. ;)
