Adding support of HTTP server on Amazon freeRTOS

Postby Rajneesh » Thu Nov 28, 2019 4:27 pm


I am also working on Amazon freeRTOS platform and facing an issue to port/integrate HTTP server (as this is not available). So, I asked this questions to Amazon developer forum and they replied as below: ... dID=313477

They told me to contact with Espressif to get help. Can I get any help from here?

Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you.

Take some time to explore the ESP32 API documentation at ... index.html.

There is some functionality here, though it may differ from what you're used to in POSIX/Linux/*BSD environments: ... erver.html

Perfectly respectable webserver but lacks asynchronous and websockets. Bit of an dead end if you want to sockets, MQTT etc.
EDIT: Not sure why ESP created this when the contrib projects have added benefit of SSI etc.
Dont use ESP FATFS or SPIFFS filesystems (IMHO) if you have 1MB+ to load. Performance sucks big times and degrades according to file storage use. 100K ok, 1MB sucks, 2+MB and you are back to dial up speeds. Use makefsdata (see lwip). I gained 100x performance over SPIFFS with 2MB+ website.
The lwip webserver supports async (from my arm memory, I could return 'not done') & is more portable but still no websockets/MQTT.
I spent a day attempting to port the ardunio asynchronous webserver (which has sockets), bottled it & gave up, maybe I missed the point but there is a mismatch between IDF and server versons to resolve.
I will have to revisit Q2 and so if you make the port let me know, better post the port!
& I also believe that IDF CAN should be fixed.
