Real Time Logic has released the Mako Server, a compact web server ideal for rapid design of server-side web applications. Using the Lua scripting language, Mako Server offers fast, efficient development of web applications, ranging from database-driven business applications to customized applications managing microcontroller-based devices. 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.
