This project began at Basho, the creators and maintainers of Riak. Due to the importance of webmachine to the broader Erlang community, a new organization was formed. Please contact @seancribbs to get involved.


Travis-CI ::

Webmachine is an application layer that adds HTTP semantic awareness on top of the excellent bit-pushing and HTTP syntax-management provided by mochiweb, and provides a simple and clean way to connect that to your application’s behavior.

More information is available here. You can also read past blog post about Webmachine here.

Quick Start

A shell script is provided in the webmachine repository to help users quickly and easily create a new webmachine application.

git clone git://
cd webmachine
./scripts/ mydemo

A destination path can also be passed to the script.

./scripts/ mydemo ~/webmachine_applications

Once a new application has been created it can be built and started.

cd mydemo

The application will be available at http://localhost:8080.
