Erlang Web servers / Web App ServersPublic Techcy posted on Thu, 25 Aug 2011 by Simon Redfern
I'm looking into Erlang http://www.erlang.org/doc/
functional programming: http://ontwik.com/erlang/introduction-to-functional-programming/
and Erlang web servers / Erlang web frameworks...
For web servers there is Yaws (developed by one of the main Erlang guys and about 10 years ago and still actively worked on) and Mochiweb (apparently a bit lighter) and something else.
There is not much documentation online for mochiweb but apparently people are using it anyway.
Webmachine builds on mochiweb:
url dispatch: http://wiki.basho.com/Webmachine-Dispatching.html
request params: https://bitbucket.org/justin/webmachine/wiki/WebmachineReqData
Zotronic builds on Webmachine (Django like templates :-) http://zotonic.com/page/516/webmachine
I came across a web framework called Chicago Boss which is Django/Ruby like but written in Erlang. The documentation seems quite good so far. Chicago Boss seems to use mochiweb by default.
