Advanced FOSS: Hack 0
Hack 1: ZTTP
ZTTP is designed to be a 0mq-to-HTTP bridge. The idea is that it would provide a way to push data to a server over 0mq to stream out to clients via HTTP.
It relies on zmq and http.server libraries, possibly others depending on storage plans.
It will be uploaded to pypi, and is meant to be simple enough to run on a Raspberry Pi. The anticipated license will be BSD 3-clause.
My upstream mentor will be Ryan Brown, a crazy Python hacker who has familiarity with HTTP servers in Python and whom I've worked with in the past.
