<h2>Introduction</h2>
<p>
Apache Tcl was born to coordinate and stimulate the
development of tools integrating the Tcl programming language
with the Apache HTTP web server. Our aim was to
combine the power of the Apache
web server with the capabilities of the mature, robust
and flexible Tcl scripting language.

<h3>Current Projects</h3>
<p>
We are currently developing and supporting
<a href="http://tcl.apache.org/rivet/" target="_blank">Apache Rivet</a>.
Rivet was meant to be a replacement of mod_dtcl and neowebscript. The best
feature of these past projects were taken to design it.
Apache Rivet provides a content
generator module (mod_rivet) which runs Tcl scripts and Rivet
templates. Rivet templates are pages written in a way similar to PHP pages,
where Tcl code can be embedded within the HTML.
</p>
<p>
Apache Rivet extends the Tcl language with new commands aimed at
providing a program interface to the web server and several
utilities that usually come handy in web programming.
</p>
<p>
Current version <a href="http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.lua/tcl/rivet">3.1</a>
of Rivet runs on Apache 2.4 and builds on both Windows and
any reasonably recent version of Unix-like operative systems.
Previous version 2.3 is still supported but builds
only on Unix and it requires Apache to run the
<a href="http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/mod/prefork.html">prefork</a> MPM.
</p>
<h4>Dismissed Projects</h4>
<p>
We sadly announce the we discontinued development and support also for
<a href="http://tcl.apache.org/websh/" target="_blank">Websh</a>
(Nov 6th 2015).
If anyone willing to take up this project and bring it
back to life within the Apache Tcl project please let us know
</p>
<p>
In recent years we also dismissed
<a href="http://tcl.apache.org/mod_tcl/" target="_blank">mod_tcl</a>
