A minimalist web framework for the Racket web-server
The library is in a very early stage of development, but is already used in most of my web projects and available in the Racket package repository:
raco pkg install web-galaxy
You can find a very simple blog written with
web-galaxy in the test folder.
web-galaxy is heavily based on the standard Racket
It provides simple tools for building a web site that
web-server does not provide but are pretty much always required in web projects:
- a translation system based on the Scheme standard SRFI 29
- a date system based on the Scheme standard SRFI 19
- a simple HTML page generator based on s-expressions
- a component system for HTML elements (called entities)
- a preconfigured logging system
- a preconfigured server so that you don't have to know every inner-workings of the Racket
web-server, configurable step by step using parameters
The aim of this library is to stay as simple and light as possible by using Scheme standards and basic Racket libraries, but still provide an easy "all-in-one" package to start developing web sites in Racket.
