Getting going right away.
Make sure that you have a working Erlang/OTP release, R12B5 or later.
Get the webmachine code:
hg clone http://bitbucket.org/justin/webmachine/ webmachine-read-only
cd webmachine-read-only make
Create, build, and start the skeleton resource:
./scripts/new_webmachine.sh mywebdemo /tmp cd /tmp/mywebdemo make ./start.sh
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.
