For all the DWM admiring Linux hipsters our there ;-) . The suckless site has a nice list of "stuff that rocks". Basically an index of small, efficient applications they like.


This sort of thing is basically catnip for me.

I wonder how well the web servers at the bottom compare to larger ones in terms of speed/CPU usage/RAM usage. I'm still looking for a good server to use for purely static text files, with a priority on minimal resource use, and I wonder if these would be good contenders? None of them are on Tech Empower benchmarks (, which makes it harder to compare.

I haven't used them but based on the suckless philosophy I would expect them to be significantly lighter than even the typical popular "light" webservers.

How bout this.
python -m SimpleHTTPServer 8000
