I was wondering if it would be worth providing better HTTP 1.1 support in http.server. The way I envision it, there would be a separate HTTP11RequestHandler which would provide:
- a smart wfile with automatic chunk encoding (which relieves the API user from manually handling chunk encoding or content length calculation)
- keep-alive enabled by default
- HTTP 1.1 by default (BaseHTTPRequestHandler defaults to 1.0)
What do you think?
+1 for 3.4
You proposed gave me another idea. What do you think about SPDY support in the stdlib? It's the next step after HTTP 1.1.
Given the rate SPDY is changing, complexity of implementation, and that some prerequisites aren't in place (zlib module needs to support specifying the dictionary), this probably isn't a good idea right away. It's also easy to get a similar effect using a SPDY-capable reverse proxy.
