Request and response objects

A lot of the logic in web servers are concerned with parsing requests and building up responses. fiery uses the Request and Response classes defined in the reqres package. See the documentation there.


A central part of many servers is the router that takes care of recieving requests and directing them at the right handlers for further processing. Being the minimal server framework that it is, fiery doesn’t include router functionality itself, but the routr package.
