This project began at Basho, the creators and maintainers of Riak. Due to the importance of webmachine to the broader Erlang community, a new organization was formed. Please contact @seancribbs to get involved.
Webmachine is an application layer that adds HTTP semantic awareness on top of the excellent bit-pushing and HTTP syntax-management provided by mochiweb, and provides a simple and clean way to connect that to your application’s behavior.
A shell script is provided in the
webmachine repository to help
users quickly and easily create a new
git clone git://github.com/basho/webmachine.git cd webmachine ./scripts/new_webmachine.sh mydemo
A destination path can also be passed to the
./scripts/new_webmachine.sh mydemo ~/webmachine_applications
Once a new application has been created it can be built and started.
cd mydemo make ./start.sh
The application will be available at http://localhost:8080.
