Getting started

First, let's get the source code

Currently the project is hosted on github ( ). The easiest way to get the source is

 git clone git://
 cd EiffelWebReloaded
 git submodule update --init
 git submodule foreach git checkout master
  • Note: I don't really know, how to avoid the "git checkout master" , but I found it to be the best solution to avoid trouble later (but it seems the checkout master is not required)

How to compile ?

  • Apart from the fcgi library, you don't have anything special to do.
  • If you want to use the fcgi support on Windows, go to library\server\fcgi\libfcgi\Win32, and open the libfcgi.vcxproj in VisualStudio
  • This part would need to be improved, but currently the libfcgi is not very nice (sorry to say that).

How to contribute ?

  • First download, and try the example, please report any trouble
  • Provide review, suggestion, documentation improvement, and contribution
  • If you desire to contribute to the code, I would advice to [Fork] the current repository on , and when you have a contribution ready to be share, please let us know (using for instance the [Pull] facility, and we'll pull from your repository, and after code review, hopefully we'll integrate the changes or additions to this project. Note you can also just fork/clone this repository on your local machine, and send patch directly.
  • Spreads the word, and let people know about this web solution.
