App

A Crow app defines an interface to allow the developer access to all the different parts of the framework, without having to manually deal with each one.

An app allows access to the http server (for handling connections), router (for handling URLs and requests), Middlewares (for extending Crow), among many others.

Crow has 2 different app types:

SimpleApp

Has no middlewares.

App<m1, m2, ...>

Has middlewares.

Using the app

To use a Crow app, simply define crow::SimpleApp or crow::App<m1, m2 ...> if you're using middlewares.
The methods of an app can be chained. That means that you can configure and run your app in the same code line.

app.bindaddr(192.168.1.2).port(443).ssl_file("certfile.crt","keyfile.key").multithreaded().run();
Or if you like your code neat
app.bindaddr(192.168.1.2)
.port(443)
.ssl_file("certfile.crt","keyfile.key")
.multithreaded()
.run();
