nginx on gentoo has a relatively straightforward path to using fastcgi (fcgiwrap). I'm "oldschool" in that i don't really care about what fancy functionality i gain with some new tech (like nodejs) when all i want to do is speak to a very specific API endpoint, or handle a specific API call from some server like rocket.chat or mattermost.

I contemplated using nodejs or something else, but the ability to bang out a script that answers on a URL on nginx is so much easier, python or otherwise.
