Description

Eliom is a framework for programming Web sites and client/server Web applications. It introduces new concepts to simplify programming common behaviors and uses advanced static typing features of OCaml to check many properties of the Web site at compile time. If you want to write a Web application, Eliom makes possible to write the whole application as a single program (client and server parts). A syntax extension is used to distinguish both parts and the client side is compiled to JS using Ocsigen Js_of_ocaml.

README

Eliom

Eliom is a framework for building web sites and client/server web applications in OCaml. Eliom employs sophisticated techniques from the field of functional programming, thus enabling the programmer to build complex web sites in very few lines of code. Both the server and the client parts of an application are implemented in OCaml, as a single program.

Eliom is part of the Ocsigen project.

Installation Instructions

We recommend that you use the OPAM package manager to install Eliom. Once you have installed OPAM, all you have to do is type:

opam install eliom

If you want to compile manually,

  • run make to compile;

  • run make PREFIX=${YOURPREFIX} install (as root if necessary) to install; and

  • run make PREFIX=${YOURPREFIX} uninstall to uninstall everything.

Testing locally

  • Install Eliom.

  • Run make run.local or make run.opt.local in the Eliom source directory.

  • Open http://localhost:8080/miniwiki in your browser.

  • If the above does not work, look at the logs (see local/var/log/ in the Eliom source directory) or run Eliom with either of the options -v, -V (verbose and debug mode, respectively).

  • Sources for this example may be found in the directory tests/miniwiki. A complete tutorial is available online. For a testsuite, see http://localhost:8080/.
