Daraja Framework logo

Daraja is a flexible HTTP framework for Object Pascal, based on the HTTP server in the free open source library Internet Direct (Indy).

The framework uses simple request mapping rules to generate the HTTP response, and to invoke your Delphi or Free Pascal code.

The framework requires no package installation and has only one external dependency (Indy).
