Nancy self hosting

Check out my new course Learn you some Lambda best practice for great good! and learn the best practices for performance, cost, security, resilience, observability and scalability.

Then you write your module code and then simply create an instance of NancyHost with the base URL you want to use and call the Start() method to start hosting! It just couldn’t be easier :-D

Here’s a quick example:

Enjoy!
