[erlang-questions] Web toolkit, N2O guide
Mon Apr 1 21:37:04 CEST 2019
thanks for the response. I already had Zotonic on the focus, but for my
current web app (may be proved wrong at any given point) it seems a bit
overkill. Most of the nice features (I'd be glad with for a larger app)
I don't really need there, current idea is to:
* serve only static pages with only a single variable element (header
colour dependent on date) and
* two user accounts, one for administering (uploading/changing pages)
and one for enabling download of specific content (PDFs).
Further improvement will only include:
* Template based page generation,
* (ToDo like) database application, to be filled only from admin
account, public list display, history.
As I'm rather new to Erlang, I'm looking for the/a toolkit with least
possible learning effort for me on one hand, runtime footprint on the
second and not too much difference from a "conventional", static web
server, as the application is to be mostly administered by non-IT
What I was stuck of with the N2O manual, is the fact that they forgot
to mention "mad" as a requirement... hope I'll closer get to it now.
