Now we have Actions!

[ #37559 ]
On behalf of the OpenResty team, I'm happy to announce that OpenResty 0.5.0 has been released to CPAN, which means OpenResty has hit its 5th milestone indicated by a working Action API.

I've found Acitons very useful in grouping together concurrent AJAX requests, which will make webpages load much faster. Our blog sites are already taking full advantage of this trick:

Also, Actions ensure cascaded requests run in exactly the expected order and the REST interfaces are called (mostly) in the expected way (e.g. from the end users' web browser). There used to be a serious security hole in the above blog sites in past because I had to expose PUT /=/model/Post/~/~ to the Public role for updating the "comments" field in the Post model before we have Actions.

The main server for OpenResty,, has already been upgraded to 0.5.0. If you want to play with OpenResty directly on our servers, feel free to write to me (agentzh at yahoo dot cn) and get an account for free!

  • I don't have anything useful to add, except that I've been watching the releases of OpenResty and find it interesting, and encourage you to keep it up.

    • Thanks!

      I've been working on it in a full time fashion in the past year. And we (Yahoo! China and are employing more Perl hackers to work on it ;)
