good way to implement REST services

3 September 2015, 14:34
maybe a bit off topic but I am wondering what is a good and proven way to provide REST services from hiawatha.

The existing serverside data consists of configuration files on disk and dynamic data, that is accessible by C API calls.
Required is to present that data in form of REST services on the web in order to support a GUI, that is going to be implemented with a java-script framework.

My impression so far is, that I should either implement the REST services as cgi-scripts or have a separate application server for them and use hiawatha as a proxy to that server. Did I miss something here? Anyone with experience or recommendations to some lib or framework to support one ore the other approach?
