This class is used for accessing the local Web server and the current client request and information.

Static variables

staticread onlyisModNeko:Bool

staticread onlyisTora:Bool

Static methods

staticcacheModule(f:() ‑> Void):Void

Set the main entry point function used to handle requests. Setting it back to null will disable code caching.


Flush the data sent to the client. By default on Apache, outgoing data is buffered so this can be useful for displaying some long operation progress.

staticgetAuthorization():{user:String, pass:String}

Returns an object with the authorization sent by the client (Basic scheme only).


Retrieve a client header value sent with the request.

staticgetClientHeaders():List<{value:String, header:String}>

Retrieve all the client headers.


Surprisingly returns the client IP address.

staticgetCookies():Map<String, String>

Returns an hashtable of all Cookies sent by the client. Modifying the hashtable will not modify the cookie, use setCookie instead.


Get the current script directory in the local filesystem.


Returns the local server host name.


Get the HTTP method used by the client. This API requires Neko 1.7.1+.

staticgetMultipart(maxSize:Int):Map<String, String>

Get the multipart parameters as an hashtable. The data cannot exceed the maximum size specified.


Returns an Array of Strings built using GET / POST values. If the URL contains the parameters [a[]=foo;a[]=hello;a[5]=bar;a[3]=baz] then neko.Web.getParamValues("a") will return ["foo","hello",null,"baz",null,"bar"]


Returns the GET and POST parameters.


Returns all the GET parameters String.


Returns all the POST data. POST Data is always parsed as being application/x-www-form-urlencoded and is stored into the getParams hashtable. POST Data is maximimized to 256K unless the content type is multipart/form-data. In that case, you will have to use getMultipart or parseMultipart methods.


Returns the original request URL (before any server internal redirections)


Write a message into the web server log file. This API requires Neko 1.7.1+.

staticparseMultipart(onPart:(String, String) ‑> Void, onData:(Bytes, Int, Int) ‑> Void):Void

Parse the multipart data. Call onPart when a new part is found with the part name and the filename if present and onData when some part data is read. You can this way directly save the data on hard drive in the case of a file upload.


Tell the client to redirect to the given url ("Location" header)

staticsetCookie(key:String, value:String, ?expire:Date, ?domain:String, ?path:String, ?secure:Bool, ?httpOnly:Bool):Void

Set a Cookie value in the HTTP headers. Same remark as setHeader.

staticsetHeader(h:String, v:String):Void

Set an output header value. If some data have been printed, the headers have already been sent so this will raise an exception.


Set the HTTP return code. Same remark as setHeader.
