Lightweight async request runner. GitOps friendly.

A simplified version of trusted-cgi designed for async processing extreme amount of requests.

Main goals:

  • Should have semi-constant resource consumption regardless of:
    • number of requests,
    • size of requests,
    • kind of requests;
  • Should be ready to run without configuration;
  • Should be ready for deploying in clouds;
  • Should support extending for another providers;
  • Can be used as library and as a complete solution;
  • Performance (throughput/latency) has less priority than resource usage.

Please note that the project is being developed in free time, as a non-profitable hobby project. All codes, bugs, opinions, and other related subjects should not be considered as the official position, official project, or company-backed project to any of the companies for/with which I worked before or/and at present.


  • On attempt failed job
  • On failed job
  • On success job
  • Per endpoint swagger
  • Pickup file as an artifact




(After 1.0.0)

We are trying to follow semver:

  • Patch releases provides fixes or light improvements without migration
  • Minor releases provides new functionality and provides automatic migration if needed
  • Major releases provides serious platform changes and may require manual or automatic migration

Within one major release, it guarantees forward compatibility: new versions can use data from previous versions, but not vice-versa.

Reproducible binaries

The project tries to follow best practices providing reproducible binaries: it means, that you can verify that complied binaries will be exactly the same (byte to byte) as if you will compile it by yourself by following our public instructions.

Quick start

(optional) initialize configuration

nano-run server init

it will create required directories and files in a current working directory.

define a unit file

Create minimal unit file (date.yaml) that will return current date (by unix command date) and put it in directory run/conf.d/


command: date

start nano-run

nano-run server run

now you can open ui over http://localhost:8989 or do API call: curl -X POST http://localhost:8989/api/date/
