webmachine / QuickStart

Getting going right away.

Make sure that you have a working Erlang/OTP release, R12B5 or later.

Get the webmachine code:

hg clone webmachine-read-only

Build webmachine:

cd webmachine-read-only

Create, build, and start the skeleton resource:

./scripts/ mywebdemo /tmp
cd /tmp/mywebdemo

Take a look! Point a web browser at http://localhost:8000/

To make this resource handle URI paths other than /, add more DispatchConfiguration terms in /tmp/mywebdemo/priv/dispatch.conf; to make that resource to more interesting things, modify the resource itself at /tmp/mywebdemo/src/mywebdemo_resource.erl.

To learn how to do more interesting things, read the rest of this wiki.
