I'll try to implement OWIN host on top of my libevent built-in http server
( https://github.com/kekekeks/evhttp-sharp ) since for now it's the fastest
thing for handling HTTP-requests on Mono I know (now it has host
implementation for NancyFx which we are using in production for half of a
Although both evhttp-sharp and FastCGI servers like HyperFastCGI and Fos,
are incapable of serving websockets (one because of underlying
implementation, another because of limitations of FastCGI protocol), so it
would be great to wrap something like
https://github.com/kekekeks/evhttp-sharp which has websocket support and
positioned as evhttp drop-in replacement.
